Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First, to find the equation of the line, find the slope. Use the slope formula. \[m=\frac{ y_2y_1 }{ x_2x_1 }\] The points are already given to you, so you just need to plug them in. \[m=\frac{ 5  7 }{ 0  4 }\] Once you get the slope, plug it in the slopeintercept formula, along with the points. y = mx + b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the slope would be 12/7 i think. Im trying to help my son with his summer classes and they dont give much to work with.
