# How do you find the equation of the line that passes through the points (7,3) and (2,5)?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

To find the line passing through these two points we will use the point-slope formula. However, first we must determine the slope.

The slope can be found by using the formula:

Where

For our problem we can substitute and find the slope as:

Now we can use the point-slope formula. The point-slope formula states:

Where

Substituting the slope we calculated and one of the points we were given.

or, converting to slope-intercept form:
