Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Get your slope first \( \huge slope(m) = \frac{y_2 y_1}{x_2x_1}\) \( \huge slope(m) = \frac{1 6}{23}\) What does the slope equal? After you get the slope we can use the point slope form to solve. Let us know when you have the slope. What does the slope equal?
