How do you write an equation in slope intercept form given that the line passes through the points (1,5) and (0,0)?
First calculate the slope.
If a line passes through two points
To avoid negative values, I will swap the order of the two points given in the question, and let
So the equation of the line in slope-intercept form must be:
for some constant
This equation of the line must be satisfied by any point on the line, so we have:
