Make sure the equation is in slope-intercept form. thanks Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15649)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Find the equation of the line containing the following points (7,-11)(3,5). Assign the given values as follows x1=7, y1=-11 x2=3, y2=5 : Use slope formula: m = so we have m = = = = -4 is the slope : Use the point/slope formula y - y1 = m(x - x1) y - (-11) = -4(x - 7) y + 11 = -4x + 28 y = -4x + 28 - 11 y = -4x + 17, is the slope/intercept equation
