    Do you know how to find the slope between 2 points?

    Set it up, including the missing variable, and set it equal to 3. Then solve.

    so it would be 3 - 2 over 2 - (-5) ?

    then set it equal to 3 and solve..

    (y-2)/7=3 multiply both sides by 7, then add 2

    So I replace Y with 3, then I did that whole part. I got 1/7
