Find the slope, m = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1).

Then use the equation y - y1 = m(x - x1) with either point to find the equation of the line.

Marth actually told you a way to do it

slope = m = (6-4)/(6-2) = 2/4 = 1/2

so

y - y1 = m(x - x1)

y - 4 = (1/2)(x-2)

2y - 8 = x - 2

2y = x + 6

a drop from 100 to 50 is 50. a rise 50 to 100. will the percent of decrease and the percent of increase be the same.
