Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2(x1,y1)=(3,2) (x2,y2)=(6,1) So (y2y1)/(x2x1) = (12)/(6(3)) = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It is always a good idea to write down the two points one on top of the other, as @pooja195 suggested earlier. This way, it's easier to figure out the numbers without making a mistake.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Excellent, so that's your slope, 1/3 is the same as 1/3. Now use the point slope form to get the equation. You can use P1=(x1,y1)=(3,2) as your point, and slope is a=1/3. The equation is then (yy1) = a(xx1)
