# What is the equation of the line passing through #(44,98)# and #(-15,-9)#?

##### 1 Answer

In slope intercept form, the answer should be:

#### Explanation:

The first step is to calculate the slope of the line, and the second is to calculate the intercept based on a known set of coordinates.

Step 1: Calculate the slope. Linear slope can be easily written as

plugging in the two sets of coordinates:

And now we have our slope.

Next, we need to solve for the intercept. Let's use the

Next, we'll bring our fraction to the Left-Hand Side (LHS) and solve for

To make the fractional math easier, lets raise -9 to the common denominator of 59:

now we can fill out the slope intercept equation:
