##### 1 Answer

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

The equation in the problem is in slope-intercept form. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

Where

For:

We can substitute this into the formula to give:

Into this we can substitute the values of the points in the problem for

We can now substitute the slope and the value for
