Point-Slope Form for the Equation of a Line
Find the equation of the line that passes through the points (-2, 7) and (6, 3). Write your answer in point-slope form.
To find the equation in point-slope form, we first find m, the slope of the line.
The point-slope form of the equation of the line that passes through (-2, 7) and (6, 3) is
If we had used the other point, (-2, 7), we would have obtained:
This equation is equivalent to
