Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So for every 3 you go forwards in X, Y drops by 5. Easiest way is to find the equation, imho. So 3/5x + z=Y z = unknown so we have 1 pt to use (P). so 3/5 x 1 (our x)= 3/5 but the Y value is 4, so the difference is 4  (3/5) = 4.6 so the equation is 3/5x + 4.6 = Y so if Y=1 for the second pt, Q, plug it into the equation to get 1= 3/5x + 4.6 rearrange to get 3.6=3/5x divide both sides by 3/5 x=6
