Find an equation of the line containing the give pair of points.
(2, 1), and (7,4)
The equation of the line in slopeintercept from is y= what

The slope is
m = (y2y1)/(x2x1)
= [4 (1]/[7(2)]
= 3/5 = 3/5
The equation will be of the form
y = (3/5) x + b
Use the coordinates of either point to solve for b
1 = (2)(3/5) + b = 6/5 + b
b = 1/5 
Give the equation that is parellel to the following lines and passing through the given points:
(Y6) = 4(X=3) (2,7)

y6 4x=24+84
