Find the equation of the line passing through the points (-2,-17) and (-5,11). Enter your answer in "y = mx + b" form.
The first step is to find the slope:
slope formula: y2-y1/x2-x1
If you plug the values in the slope would be: -28/3
This is how your equation should be looking so far:
Now, plug one of the pairs into the equation and solve for b.
I'll use (-5,11)
Your final equation would be y=-28/3x-107/3
