Find an equation of the line containing the given pair of points
(1/4,-1/2) and (3/4,6)What is the equation of the line y=? Any and all help will be appreciated. Thanks

Use the points given to find the slope.
slope = (y1-y2)/(x1-x2)
Then the straight line formula is
y = mx + b. Plug in one set of points, along with m you just determined, and solve for b.
