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

  • ALGEBRA 1 -

    find the slope using the distance and put the points into the point-slope equation


    y1 - y= m times (x-x1)

    so if you have the points (3,4) and the slope is 5 then the equation would look like this:

    4-y= 5 (x-3)

    then distrubute the 5
    so its 4-y = 5x -15

    then solve it for y
