Here's how I did it:

#### Explanation:

Point-slope form is shown here:

As you can see, we need to know the value of the **slope** and one point value.

To find the slope, we use the formula

So let's plug in the value of the points:

Now simplify:

The slope is

Since we have the value of two points, let's put one of them into the equation:
