Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0slopeintercept form:\[y=mx+b\]where m is the slope and b is the yintercept. you need to find the value of these or find another equation for the line that goes through your points and then solve that equation for y to get it into slopeintercept form.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0pointslope form:\[yy_1=m \left( xx_1 \right)\]if you solve for y you get:\[y=mxmx_1+y_1 \Rightarrow y=mx+\left( y_1mx_1 \right) \Rightarrow \left(y_1mx_1\right) = b\] \[m=\frac{ y_2y_1 }{ x_2x_1 }\]\[\left( x_1, y_1 \right) \text{ and } \left( x_2, y_2 \right) \text{ are points}\]
