Question: Built-in function to return an equation for inputting two points

Maple 13

hmm... I don't really understand the diference between a question and a post, but here goes.

I homeschool my two grandchildren in the 8th and 10th grades. they are not taking calculus or precalc yet. Lately we have been studing systems of equations. what I used to call simultaneous equations. We find the x-y intercepts and plot them. We also work backward and find the equation from the intercepts.

My question is this: Is there a built-in function such as Built-in-Function([0, 4], [4, 0]); That would return the equation from the intercepts or two other points?
