    Stuck think I got the first half Linear Function who passes between two points given

    (1994,53,504); (1995, 57,184)

    ok I used the M=Y2-Y1/X2-X1

    57,184-53,504/1995-1994= 3608x

    How do I find the second problem the book says the correct answer is 3680x-7,2814,416

    Do I use Y=mx+b
    if so how?
    Thanks any help would be appreciated

    \displaystyle y-y_1=m(x-x_1)\Rightarrow y=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}(x-x_1)+y_1
