find the slope , call it m
write it as
y = mx + b
use one of the points to replace the x and y values, that way you can find b
put that back in, and you are done
let me know what you get

I got y=10/3 x + b
Then I used (5,4) so 4=10/3(5) + b
and I got y=10/3x  46/3. I am not sure if I multiplied and added the fractions correctly

I had b = 38/3
a trick is to use the point that was not used and sub it is, the other point does work for 38/3
