Systems of Two Linear Equations: Help plugging in plots.

So currently I'm learning about Systems of Two Linear Equations. I have to write an equation (y = mx + b) and use the points (24, 16). What would I input in the equation?

Do you have any additional information for this problem?

Is (24, 16) the solution of the system? Without more details multiple pairs of equations could have it.

I was given two points, I'd just thought that you only needed one. One of the main reasons I never understood this is how did you get 2m and 3m from 5 and 7?

Using the point, (2,5): x = 2, y = 5 So your (y = mx + b) equation becomes: 5 = 2m + b
