The slope is

m = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

= [-4 -(-1]/[-7-(-2)]

= -3/-5 = 3/5

The equation will be of the form

y = (3/5) x + b

Use the coordinates of either point to solve for b

-1 = (-2)(3/5) + b = -6/5 + b

b = 1/5

Give the equation that is parellel to the following lines and passing through the given points:

(Y-6) = 4(X=3) (-2,7)
