# How do you write an equation in point-slope form for the given (-1, 7), (5, 7)?

##### 1 Answer

Calculate the slope between the two given points and using that slope and either of the points write in point slope form as;

#### Explanation:

**Step 1: Determine the slope**

Slope of a line between two points

For the given points

**Step 2: Write in slope point form**

For a slope of

the point-slope form is

If we choose to use

and our previously determined value for

this becomes:

**Note** that this is an unusual form, but it is this the formal "point-slope# version.
