Question #1274

How to find the equation of the line passing through the point (2,-8) and (3,3)?

Expert's answer

Let's write the equation of the line in the form

y = mx + b.

We have to solve the system of equations:

-8 = 2m + b

3 = 3m + b.

m = 11, b = -30.

**The equation of the line:**

**y = 11x - 30.**

y = mx + b.

We have to solve the system of equations:

-8 = 2m + b

3 = 3m + b.

m = 11, b = -30.
