Writing Linear Equations in Slope-Intercept Form

In order to determine the equation in slope-intercept form, find the slope and the -intercept.The slope is found using the slope formula where, for example, is the second point's -coordinate. It doesn't matter which point we choose as the first and second. Now, we'll substitute our points into the slope formula.

The slope is . So far we have determined that Now, how do we find the -value? It can be found by substituting one of the points into our equation and solve it for
The line's equation is , and we're done.
