after finding distance and midpoint.. how do you find the equation of the line?

find the slope using the distance and put the points into the pointslope equation
y1  y= m times (xx1)
so if you have the points (3,4) and the slope is 5 then the equation would look like this:
4y= 5 (x3)
then distrubute the 5
so its 4y = 5x 15
then solve it for y
