# How do you find the equation in slope - intercept form, of the line passing through the points (2,-3) & (-6,-7)?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

The slope intercept form is

#y=mx+b#

We're looking for

#m = 4/8#

Simplify and it becomes

#y=1/2x+b#

We need

Subtract

That gives you

#y = 1/2x - 4#

(Sorry if this is confusing ;3;)
