In my maths question I am asked to find the equation of the line, the information I have been given is;

(-4, -2) and (2, 7)

I have worked out that I am supposed to work out the gradient of the line after plotting the graph, thw gradient I have found to be - 1.71.

Using this I have worked out that;

y = -1.71 times (x) + 2

using the above I can then find my new values of y;

y = -1.71 x -4 = 8.84 etc

so the equation of the line would be;

y - -1.71x + 2

Please advise if I have worked out the equation of the line correctly and used the right techniques

Thanks
