Do you know how to find the equation of a line, when you are given two points?

9. AntarAzri

yes y=ax+b and a=f(x1)-f(x2)/x1-x2

10. CliffSedge

It's a linear relation; only two points are needed. Start with slope formula, $$\large m=\frac{y-y_1}{x-x_1}$$ Then you can rearrange that to $$\large y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$$
