(0, 5) [y-intercept], or any point on the graph below

#### Explanation:

**First,** find the slope with two points by using this equation:

Label your ordered pairs.

(3, 11)

(-2, 1)

Plug in your variables.

Simplify.

Because two negatives divide to make a positive, your answer will be:

**Part Two**

Now, use point-slope formula to figure out what your equation in y = mx + b form is:

Plug in your variables.

Distribute and simplify.

Solve for each variable. To solve for the y = mx + b equation, add 11 to both sides to negate -11.

Now, plot this on a graph:
