See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, we need to determine the slope of the line. The slope can be found by using the formula:

Where

Substituting the values from the points in the problem gives:

We know from the point

We can use the slope-intercept formula to write and equation for the line. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

Where

Substituting the slope we calculated and the
