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
