Use the determinant to write an equation of the line passing through (–1, 3) and (2, 4). Then expand the determinant, expressing the line’s equation in slope-intercept form.

Usually the determinant will look like this:
(x y 1)
( -1 3 1)
(2 4 1)

Expand by minors, set it equal to zero and simplify.
