    Standard form is y = mx + b First determine the slope. \(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow {Slope = {y_2 - y_1 \over x_2 - x_1}} }\) Then substitute m with the slope and find b.

    choose 1 and then find the slope (m) with the given equation from Parthkohli

    But it's better to do it from point slope form and then isolate y. slope-intercept form is sometimes hard to see right away and you are not given the y-int as one of the points
