 Question 357153: Find the equation of the line that goes through the points (-3,2) and (4,5)..i got y=3/7x+5 but i checked and it doesnt fitAnswer by jim_thompson5910(28593)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!First let's find the slope of the line through the points and Note: is the first point . So this means that and . Also, is the second point . So this means that and . Start with the slope formula. Plug in , , , and Subtract from to get Subtract from to get So the slope of the line that goes through the points and is Now let's use the point slope formula: Start with the point slope formula Plug in , , and Rewrite as Distribute Multiply Add 2 to both sides. Combine like terms. note: If you need help with fractions, check out this solver. So the equation that goes through the points and is If you need more help, email me at jim_thompson5910@hotmail.com Also, feel free to check out my tutoring website Jim
