Answer:y = .25x + 2.5

Step-by-step explanation:First find the slope which is m in y = mx + b. y = mx + b is the standard form for a line.

m = (y₂-y₁)/(x₂-x₁)

m = (3-1)/(2+6)

m = 2/8

m = 1/4

Plug that in.

y = 1/4x + b

To find b plug in one of the two points and solve.

3 = 1/4(2) + b

3 = 1/2 + b

3 – 1/2 = 1/2 – 1/2 + b

2.5 = b
