The answer is:

It is possible to use this formula, that is the formula to find a line given two points

So:

I created a video that answers the question and shows you how to check you work.

To solve this problem you first find the slope of the line, using the two points

Then you use the y-intercept equation of a line using the slope above and one of the above sets of points to find the y-intercept.

Then just plug that information into
