write an equation for the line in point slope form...when it passes through (9,1) and the x intercept is 5 and then slope intercept form...im so confused

math 
Reiny,
You are given two points
(9,1) and (5,0)
Every textbook must have an example for this basic type of question. 
math 
drwls,
The line passes through (9,1) and (5,0)
The slope is (10)/(95) = 1/4
y = (1/4) x + b
1 = 9/4 + b
b = 5/4
y = (1/4)(x  5)
is the equation of the line.

Jay,
thanks drwls...and wow thanks for nothing reiny ..you sound like a know it all so sorry i didn't know what to do never mind im not..no need to be a jerk bout it....
