**Find the equation of the line using the point-slope formula. Write the final equation using the slope-intercept form. (x, y) = (−5, 10) and (x, y) = (7, −2) are points on the line**

**Answer:**

(Y2-Y1)/(X2-X1)=m

y=mx+b

(-2-10)/(7-(-5))=m

-1=m

y=-1x+b

Solve for b with one of you point values:

-2=(-1)(7)+b

b=5

y=-1x+5
