Use the differences in the y and x values to find the slope then substitute the values of one point into the equation to find b the y intercept.
Slope =y1y2x1x2=m
By putting the x and y values for the two points into the slope equation the value for m can be found.
The equation of a line in the slope intercept form is
After finding m using the slope equation substitute one set of point values for y and x. This leaves b as the only unknown. Slope the resulting equation for b.
