# How do you write the equation for a line that passes through points (2,1) and (0,7)?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

To find the equation of a line passing through two points you must first find the slope of the line.

The slope can be found by using the formula:

Where

Next we can use the point-slope formula to find the equation for the line passing through these two points.

The point-slope formula states:

Where

We can substitute

Solving for the slope intercept form gives:
