First find the slope of the given line (7x  2y = 5). Then use y  y1 = m(x  x1) to find the equation of the line passing through the point (x1, y1) = (3, 3)

How do you find the slope of a line? If the point were changed to (1, 1) would the slope of the line change?
If y = mx + b, then the slope is m and the yintercept is b.
