Find the slope of the line passing through the pair of points.
( 5, 5) and ( 9, 7)

For given points P1(5,5) and P2(9,7),
the line passing through the two given points is given by:
L:(yy1)/(y2y1)=(xx1)/(x2x1)
where
(x1,y1)=(5,5), and
(x2,y2)=(9,7)
So
L:(y5)/(75)=(x(5))/(9(5))
Simplify to get the final equation. 
if you did y3y8y5 you have to divide it so that what do you you have to do
