# What is the equation of the line passing through #(180,3), (2,68)#?

##### 1 Answer

The line is

#### Explanation:

The equation for a line takes the form:

Where

To calculate slope, we use the tried-and-true "rise over run" relationship:

So for our line we have:

You'll note here that the order of the x and y didn't matter. If we reversed it we'd end up with:

So since we know the slope, all we need to do is plug in the known

Combining all our results gives us our line:

You can test that this result is correct by plugging in
