Hello, Carel!
You are that close to the answer . . .
How do I get the line equation from two points ?
The equation is
The two points are (1,2) and (5,5).
I know how to calculate . Right!
So this is what I've got: . . . . . Good!
Since is on the line, .**
. . then must satisfy the equation.
Plug them into your equation: . . . . see?
. . Therefore, the equation is: .
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

It doesn't matter which point we use; the answer will be the same.
Since is on the line,
. . then must satisfy the equation.
Plug them into your equation: . . . . yay!
. . Therefore, the equation is: .
This is good way to check our answer.
