Plug into the slope intercept form {{highlight(y=mx+b)}}} and solve for b. Now you have m=2/3 and b=13/3, plug them into y=mx+b and you have the equation of the line: Happy Calculating!!! Answer by checkley71(8403)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!(7-3)/(4+2)=4/6 or 2/3 for the slope & 3=2/3(-2)+b 3=-4/3+b or b=3+4/3 or b=13/3 thus the formula is y=2/3x+13/3
