find the equation for the line with the given properties. Express in slope intercept. containing points P=(5,1)and
(3,0)

a line has a constant slope.
So, for any point (x,y), the slope of the line between (5,1) and (x,y) is the same as the slope from (5,1) and (3,0). So,
(y1)/(x+5) = (01)/(3+5) = 1/2
y = 1/2 (x+5) + 1
