For given points P1(-5,5) and P2(9,7),

the line passing through the two given points is given by:

L:(y-y1)/(y2-y1)=(x-x1)/(x2-x1)

where

(x1,y1)=(-5,5), and

(x2,y2)=(9,7)

So

L:(y-5)/(7-5)=(x-(-5))/(9-(-5))

Simplify to get the final equation.

if you did y3-y8-y5 you have to divide it so that what do you you have to do
