Find the distance between
Plot the points and connect them. Then create a right triangle with segment
as the hypotenuse.
Use the Pythagorean Theorem to calculate the length of segment
Write the equation of the line passing through points
and in point-slope form and slope-intercept form.
1. Determine the slope: rise/run.
2. Substitute a given point and the slope into the point-slope formula.
3. Solve for
for the slope-intercept form.
