EXAMPLE 4 Write an equation given two points Write an equation of the line that passes through (5, –2) and (2, 10). SOLUTION The line passes through (x1, y1) = (5,– 2) and (x2, y2) = (2, 10). Find its slope. y2 – y1 m = x2 –x1 10 – (– 2) = 2 – 5 12 – 3 = – 4

**Write an equation given two points**

EXAMPLE 4 Write an equation given two points You know the slope and a point on the line, so use point-slope form with either given point to write an equation of the line. Choose (x1, y1) = (4, – 7). y2 – y1 = m(x – x1) Use point-slope form. y – 10 = – 4(x – 2) Substitute for m, x1, and y1. y – 10 = – 4x + 8 Distributive property y = – 4x + 8 Write in slope-intercept form.

EXAMPLE 5 Write a model using slope-intercept form SOLUTION STEP 1 Define the variables. Let x represent the time (in years) since 1993 and let y represent the number of participants (in millions). STEP 2 Identify the initial value and rate of change. The initial value is The rate of change is the slope m.
