A plane departs from an airport at the coordinates (2,3) and heads towards another airport at the coordinates (10,8). Your task is to determine the equation of the flight path.
- Find the slope of the line representing the flight path using the given coordinates.
- Write the equation of the line in the slope-intercept form (y = mx + b).
- Explain the significance of each component in the equation in relation to the plane’s flight path.
Ensure that your solution includes all the necessary calculations and a brief explanation of each step.
