Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[m={(y2y1) \over (x2x1)}\] for slope of line passing through (x1,y1) , x2,y2) just substitute in it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let us assume there is an unknown point (x,y) between these two known points (7y)/(4x) = (y3)/(x2) Crossmultiply and simplify to get y = 2x1 To check if this equation of the line is correct, plug in the x and y values of each of the known points to see if the equation holds If it holds then the slope of the line is 2 (coeffecient of x)
