Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1take 2 sets of points and find the slope (30,18) and (36,24) now plug that into the slope formula slope(m) = (y2  y1) / (x2  x1) (30,18)....x1 = 30 and y1 = 18 (36,24)...x2 = 36 and y2 = 24 now sub slope(m) = (24  18) / (36  30) slope(m) = 6/6 which equals 1 now we take y = mx + b slope(m) = 1 you can use either of your points...(30,18)...x = 30 and y = 18 now we sub y = mx + b 18 = 1(30) + b 18 = 30 + b 18  30 = b 12 = b so your equation is : y = 1x  12 or just y = x  12
