Example 12 Find the equation of the line, in either slope-intercept form or point-slope form, passing through (5, – 4) and (3, 7). Then convert it to standard form. Starting with slope-intercept:  1. 2. Find the  y -intercept,  b Substitute the slope and either point into the slope-intercept form. 3. Substitute the slope and  y -intercept into the slope-intercept form,
