Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well first find the slope, using the following formula: \[m = \frac{ y_{2}y _{1} }{ x _{2}x _{1} }\] where your coordinates represent \[(x_1,y_1)~~\text{and}~~(x_2,y_2)\] Once you manage to get that, plug in m and your first coordinates in the point  slope form: \[yy _{1}=m(xx _{1})\] do some little algebra and eventually you will have slope  intercept form \[y=mx+b\]
