## How do you write an equation of a line given two points?

Find the Equation of a Line Given That You Know Two Points it Passes Through. The equation of a line is typically written as y=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. If you know two points that a line passes through, this page will show you how to find the equation of the line.

### How do you write an equation in slope intercept form with two points?

Once you know m and b, you can write the equation of the line.

- Step 1: Find the slope (m) The slope of the line through two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) can be found by using the formula below.
- Step 2: Find the y-intercept (b)
- Step 3: Write the equation in slope-intercept form (y = mx + b)
- Step 4: Check Your Equation.

#### What is written in slope intercept form?

The slope-intercept form is one way to write a linear equation (the equation of a line). The slope-intercept form is written as y = mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept (the point where the line crosses the y-axis). It’s usually easy to graph a line using y=mx+b.
