Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2First find the slope using equation %28y2++y1%29%2F%28x2++x1%29 Make (5,1) = (x1,y1) (2,3) = (x2,y2) Substituting %28y2++y1%29%2F%28x2++x1%29 = %283++1%29%2F%282++5%29=%282%29%2F%287%29 Now use y = mx + b as a template. m = %282%29%2F%287%29 as just determined. for y and x, use the point (5,1). x=5 and y =1. Substitute these values in y = mx + b y = mx + b ; 1 = (2/7)5 + b 1 = 10/7 + b add 10/7 to each side 1 + 10/7 = b 17/7 = b So our equation is y = (2/7)x + 17/7
