Question

Write the equation of line given points (2,3)(-2,-5). write the equation in standard form.​

2 Answer

  • i’m pretty sure it’s y=2x-1
  • [tex]\text{Given that,}\\\\(x_1,y_1) = (2, 3) ,~~~ (x_2,y_2) =(-2,-5)\\\\\\\text{Slope,}~ m = \dfrac{y_2 -y_1}{x_2 - x_1} = \dfrac{-5-3}{-2-2} = \dfrac{-8}{-4} = 2\\\\\\\text{Equation with given points,}\\\\y - y_1 = m(x-x_1)\\\\\implies y -3 = 2(x -2)\\\\\implies y -3 = 2x -4\\\\\implies 2x -y = 1[/tex]
