Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well you can find your slope by doing (y2y1)/(x2x1)... y2 = 5 y1 = 2 x2 = 3 x1 = 7 (5  2)/(3  7) (3)/(4) Your slope = 3/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So since we want our answer in the form of y=mx + b...and since we already have m...we can take one of the two points we were given (it doesn't matter which) and plug it in and solve for b. I'll use (7, 2)... y=mx+b 2 = (3/4) * (7) + b 2 = (21/4) + b Convert 2 into a fraction for the upcoming fractional subtraction... 2 = 8/4 (8/4) = (21/4) + b Subtract (21/4) from both sides... (8/4)  (21/4) = (21/4) + b  (21/4) (29/4) = b
