A line passes through the points (-6, -7) and (-2, 1). The equation of this line can be expressed as y = mx + b, where m and b are integers.

We can find the slope by using y2-y1/x2-x1

 

1-(-7)/-2-(-6) = 8/4 = 2

 

m=2

 

Now we plug in any point that is given, so let us pick (-2,1)

 

1=2(-2)+b

 

1=-4+b

 

5=b

 

Now we have our y-intercept

 

Thus, the equation of the line is y=2x+5
