$y=-\frac{5}{3}x+\frac{5}{3}$
The equation of a line which connects two points is $y-y_{1}= m(x-x_{1})$ where $m=\frac{y_{2}−y_{1}}{x_{2}−x_{1}}$ Our points are: $P_{1}$=(-5,10) $P_{2}$=(7,-10) Substituting our points we get $m=\frac{-10-10}{7-(-5)}=-\frac{5}{3}$ $y-10=-\frac{5}{3}(x-(-5))$ $y=-\frac{5}{3}x+\frac{5}{3}$
