Assign the values as follows:

X1 = 3     Y1 = 16

X2 = 10    Y2 = 44

Now we find the slope using the formula

m = (Y2 - Y1) / (X2 - X1)

Putting the values , we get

m = (44 - 16) / (10 - 3)

Hence the slope is    m = 4

Now we find the solution using the Point/Slope formula which is   Y - Y1 = m(X - X1)

Putting the values , we get

Y - 16 = 4(X - 3)

Y - 16 = 4X - 12

Adding 16 on both sides , we get

Y + 16 - 16 = 4X - 12 + 16 

Y = 4X + 4

Hence the equation is Y = 4X + 4
