first find the midpoint (pointof intersection): ((42)/2, (1+5)/2) or 1,3/2 check that.
Next find the slope of the line that connects the points: (1+5)/(42)=3
so the question now, is what is the equation of a line with slope 1/3, and goes through the point 1,3/2
y=mx+b
y=1/3 x +b
to solve for b, put in the x,y point, and now you have m, and b.
