# How do you write an equation in slope intercept form given that the line passes through the points (1,5) and (0,0)?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

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

Then:

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:

That is:

So
