Can someone help me plwease with this problem????? I need to find an equation for the given pair of points and express my answer in x=a,y=b, or y=mx+b form. Please explain it simply as I am really struggling with this.
(-1,-1) and (6,6). Thank you so much for your help!!!!!

  • math -

    (-1 ,-1) , (6 , 6)

    Slope = (6 - (-1)) / (6 - (-1)) =
    7 /7 = 1,
    y = mx + b,
    -1 = 1 * -1 + b,
    b = 0

    Eq: y = 1x + 0,
    y = x.
