    Finding a linear equation, given two points.

    Point A (x1, y1)
    Point B (x2, y2)

    Some things to remember when finding the equation of a line given two points on the line are:

    Equation of a line: y = mx + b, where m is the slope of the line and b is the y-intercept

    Slope of a line (m): (x2 - x1)/(y2 - y1)

    Step 1: Fine the slope ...
