Finding the Equation of a Line, Given Two Points

This video explains how to find the equation of a line when given 2 points.

Find the slope using the slope formula,  m = \frac{y_2 - y_1}{x_2 - x_1} .
After finding the slope, plug in the value of your points into either slope-intercept form, or point-slope form, to get the equation of the line.
