y = 3x+4

Work Step by Step

First find the slope using the two given points. To find the slope use the slope definition. m = $\frac{7-(-2)}{1-(-2)}$ = 3. Use the point slope form equation of the line to find the equation of the line. Note that you can plug in either point on the point-slope-form equation. y - (-2) = 3(x-(-2)) Simplify: y = 3x + 4
