Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so with your equation being yy1 = m(xx1), m being slope, we will need to find this. Do you know how?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Given two points \((x_1,y_1),(x_2,y_2)\) first find the slope given by \(m=\dfrac{y_1y_0}{x_1x_0}\) and then choose any point (say the first one) and we have \[y=m(xx_1)y_1\]
