We know that this is a straight line, so it will follow the slope intercept equation:

To solve this problem, we need to plug in the x and y values for one point to get b, and then we will know the equation for the line, which is valid for all points.

Let's start by solving for b:

Now we can plug in numbers:

Now that we know m and b, we can plug into our original equation:

The equation is
