 Solved by pluggable solver: FIND EQUATION of straight line given 2 points hahaWe are trying to find equation of form y=ax+b, where a is slope, and b is intercept, which passes through points (x1, y1) = (4, -2) and (x2, y2) = (5, -4). Slope a is . Intercept is found from equation , or . From that, intercept b is , or . y=(-2)x + (6) Your graph:

so, the equation is
