Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Label the coordinates of A \((x_1, y_1)\) and the coordinates of B \((x_2, y_2)\). In this case we have \(x_1 =2\), \(y_1 = 3\), \(x_2 = 4\), and you are trying to solve for \(y_2\). Slope is calculated using\[m=\frac{ y_2y_1 }{ x_2x_1 }\]Substitute in the known values and solve for \(y_2\)
