( x - 5) / ( -6 - 5) = (y - 4)/( 3 - 4) <=>  (x-5)/(-11) = (y-4)/(-1) <=> x - 5 = 11y - 44 <=>  x - 11y + 39 = 0;

First you have to find the slope of the line.   (y2 -y1) / (x2 - x1) = slope  so (3 - 4) / ( -6 - 5)  = -1/ -11 so the slope of the line is 1/11 Now you write y = mx + b  then substitute in one of the points with x and y                      4 = (1/11)(5) + b                      4 = 5/11 + b                   -5/11= - 5/11       change the 4 into 44/ 11 and subtract      44 / 11 - 5/11=         b                 39/11 =     b                          now it depends on your teacher and text usually, you can substitute the fraction for your b      y = mx + b      y = 1/11 x + 39/11   so this is your answer Does that make sense or did I make a mathematical error?
