Q:
# What is the equation that passes through (4, 3) and (2, -1)? Y = 2x - 5 y = 4x -13 y = 6x+4 y = 1/2 x -2

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:y = 2x - 5Step-by-step explanation:We are to find the equation of line the line which passes through the points (4, 3) and (2, -1).Finding the slope:Slope = [tex]\frac{3-(-1)}{4-2} =2[/tex]Substituting the coordinates of one of the given points and slope in the standard form of an equation to find the y intercept.[tex]y=mx+c[/tex][tex] -1 = 2 (2) + c \\\\ c = - 5 [/tex]So the equation of the line would be [tex]y=2x-5[/tex]
