    Well, do you know in the equation of a line \[y=m(x-h)+k\] what each letter means?

    Well, let's try to figure it out. How about this. Given two points, what's the slope of the line they make?

    No... that's an equation for the line. How about you tell me this. If you have \[p_1=(x, y)\] and \[p_2=(h, k)\], then what is the slope s you get between them?

    she just gave the slope, so that's a line

    all she has to do is plug it in the slope-intercept formula

    Okay, @candrie , when you're at the y-intercept, what's the coordinate pair?

    If a point is on a line, then its x and y values, when inserted into the formula you gave,\[y = m x +b\], must hold true.

    So put in the y-intercept's values into the formula.

    Well, I was trying to get you to say: 6=m(0)+b, so b = 6. But since you know what b and m are already, what's your question?

    just needed the equation

    Well it is y = m x + b. The difference is that my equation is y = m (x - h) + k But they're really the same because y = m x - mh + k y = m x +(k-mh) and k-mh =b
