Find an equation of the line containing the give pair of points.
(2, 1), and (7, 4). The equation of the line in slope  intercept form is y=
I 've tried this problem and can not seem to get could please help me.

First find the slope, by using y2y1/x2x1,and then plug in either one of the ordered pairs into y=mx+b, to find b,the yintercept. then plug in the slope for m and the yintercept for b, and youve got it!

if the line is (1,3) then will the answer be y=5x+8
