There are a few ways of doing this, but I'll use the one involving finding the slope of the line and then using it in point slope form.

#### Explanation:

Say m represents slope.

m =

m =

m =

The slope is

y - y1 = m(x - x1)

Select your point, say (19, 6), and plug it into the formula shown above.

y - 6 =

y - 6 =

y =

The equation of your line is y =
