You don't have a slope, but never fear, you have two points and can get the slope using the slope formula: , where m=slope, and (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) are your given points. (x1,y1)=(-5,7) and (x2,y2)=(0,1/2) Now you have a point and a slope, so you can use the point slope formula to find the equation of the line: , where m=slope and (x1,y1) is a given point. (x1,y1)=(-5,7) and m=-13/10 The Standard form of a line is , where A, B, and C are integers. A lot of books and teachers also require A to be positive. Happy Calculating!!!
