Slope is given by: \[\huge \color{blue}{Slope = \frac{y_2y_1}{x_2  x_1}}\]

Can you find slope now or not?? Just plug in the values, \[(x_1,y_1) = (2,3)\] \[(x_2,y_2) = (4,2)\]

I have to leave now... So, I am solving this for you: \[m = \frac{23}{42} = \frac{5}{2}\] The equation with one point and one slope is given by: \[\large \color{green}{y  y_1 = m(x  x_1)}\] Putting the first point \((2,3)\) in this: \[y  3 = m(x  2) \implies y  3 = \frac{5}{2}(x  2)\] \[y  3= \frac{5}{2}x + 5 \implies y = \frac{5}{2}x + 8\]
