If you mean (-2, 2) and (3, 4) then the slope of the line is 2/5

Is an equation of a straight line, with slope 7/3 x-intercept of 22/7 and y-intercept of -22/3

The equation is: y = 4x-22

five is the slope.

We want a line that passes through the points (22,0) and (-2,3)The general formula for a line is y = mx +bWhere M is our slope, and B is the y-intercept.We don't know either, so we have to use the points given to figure out 1) the slope 2) the y intercept.You can find slope by using the slope formuladifference in y's divided by the difference in x's(22,0) is (x,y) and (-2,3) is also (x,y)(0 - 3)/(22 - (-2))-3/24 = -1/8Our slope is -1/8.Now we plug m = -1/8 into the general formula y = mx +b.We also pick ONE set of points, and plug that in for x and y. (it's easier to pick smaller numbers)y = mx + b3 = (-1/8)(-2) + bNow we solve for b.3 = 1/4 + b3 - 1/4 = b12/4 - 1/4 = b (I changed 3 to a fraction to work with -1/4)11/4 = b(or 2 and 3/4)Now we know both the slope, m = -1/8 and the y-intercept, b = 11/4.We just put these into the general form of a line and we have our equation.y = mx + by = -1/8x +11/4
