    what would the equation look like after you substitute the x's and y's?

    (2-5)/(1-2) when you decide which coordinate pair will be "1" and "2" you gotta keep it like that

    do you know what point-slope form is?

  22. AriPotta

    because you have to put the information into point-slope form first before you can get it into slope-intercept form

    y = 3x and what for slope form

    what? point-slope form is y - y1 = m(x - x1)

    if we use the first ordered pair for our equation, we know that y1 is 2, x1 is 1, and m is 3. so y - 2 = 3(x - 1)

    do you know how to change that into slope-intercept form?
