## anonymous one year ago What is the slope-intercept form equation of the line that passes through (5, 7) and (8, 22)

hi welcome to openstudy! slope intercept form of a line is $$\sf y=mx+b$$ where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. First thing you have to do is use your given points to find the slope. Formula for slope is $$\sf m=\large \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$$ . After you find the slope, put it in the equation. NExt is plug in one given point to the resulting equation in the first step to solve for b or the y-intercept. I can guide you step by step if you are still confused with it :)

Now plug it in to the equation for slope that the girl stated above
