Write the equation of the line that passes through (1, 5) and (–2, 14) in slope-intercept form. can someone just give me the formula i should use please

OpenStudy (anonymous):

first you need the slope then you need the point-slope formula

OpenStudy (caishaax3):

the slope is -3

OpenStudy (anonymous):

good

OpenStudy (anonymous):

point slope is $y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$ your $$m$$ is $$-3$$ and you have a choice of two points to use for $$(x_1,y_1)$$ pick one

OpenStudy (caishaax3):

i got y=-3x+2 is that correct?
