# How do you write the equation in slope-intercept form of the line that contains the points (4, -7) and (0, 5),?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

First, we must find the slope.

The slope can be found by using the formula:

Where

Substituting the values from the points in the problem gives:

The second point in the problem gives us the y-intercept =

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

Where

Substituting the slope and the y-intercept gives:
