First, we need to determine the slope of the line running through the two points. The slope can be found by using the formula: Where is the slope and () and () are the two points on the line. The result of substituting the values from the problem's points is:
We can now use the point-slope formula to write and equation for the line. The point-slope formula states: Where is the slope and is a point the line passes through. The values from the problem's initial point and the slope we determined are substituted, and the result is:
We may also insert the values from the second point in the issue with the slope we calculated, resulting in:
