    Equation: Y = mx + b
    First of all, we will solve for our M which is our slope.
    M = Yb – Ya / Xb – Xa
    M = 9 – (-3) / 2 – 0
    M = 9 + 3 / 2 – 0
    M = 12 / 2
    M = 6

    Now that we have our slope, we will be finding our y-intercept.
    Y = mx + b
    9 = (6)(2) + b
    9 = 12 + b
    = 9-12 = 12-12 + b (12 cancels out)
    = -3 = b

    So, therefore, the equation is: Y = 6x – 3
