Use point-slope form to write the equation of the line passing through the two given points. Write the equation in slope-intercept form. I do not have a good grasp on this type of math problem. Thank youAnswer by checkley71(8403)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!FIRST YOU NEED TO FIND THE SLOPE (Y2-Y1)/(X2-X1) (-3-4)/(0-3) -7/-3=7/3 IS THE SLOPE (m). Y=mX+b NOW REPLACE THE X & Y VALUES WITH ONE SET OF VALUES & THE SLOPE=7/3 & SOLVE FOR THE Y INTERCEPT (b) 4=7*3/3+b 4=7+b b=4-7 b=-3 THIS IS THE Y INTERCEPT. Y=7X/3-3 IS THIS LINE EQUATION THROUGH THE POINTS (3,4)(0,-3). (graph 300x200 pixels, x from -6 to 5, y from -10 to 10, 7x/3 -3).
