How do you write the equation in slope intercept form given (2,7) and (-4,1)?
See the entire solution process below:
First, determine the slope of the line. The slope can be found by using the formula:
Substituting the values from the points in the problem gives:
The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:
We can substitute the slope we calculated and one of the points from the problem for
We can now substitute the slope and y-intercept we calculated into the formula:
