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

You are given two points
(9,1) and (5,0)
Every textbook must have an example for this basic type of question.

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.
