# How do you write the equation of a line in point slope form and slope intercept form given points (-2, 6) (5, 1)?

##### 1 Answer

Your point slope form formula is=

Where

You need to find your

Your first point in the first bracket is

So,

You need to find the slope before you can put it into point slope form.

To find slope using points, the formula is=

So your slope is going to be=

Your slope is

Next step is to substitute points into your point slope formula.

This is going to be

Your point slope formula is equaled to

To find slope intercept form first you have to eliminate the bracket.

To do so multiply everything in the bracket by -5/7.

Your equation will look like this

Next you have to isolate your y variable. To do so, add 6 to both sides.

This will leave you with your slope intercept form which is
