Find an equation of the line containing the give pair of points.
(-2, -1), and (-7, -4). The equation of the line in slope - intercept form is y=

• algebra -

First find the slope, by using y2-y1/x2-x1,and then plug in either one of the ordered pairs into y=mx+b, to find b,the y-intercept. then plug in the slope for m and the y-intercept for b, and youve got it!
