# How do you find a standard form equation for the line with #(-4,2)# and #(6,8)#?

##### 1 Answer

The equation is

#### Explanation:

Standard form of an equation: ax+by=c (a, b, and c must be integers)

To find the standard form, first I'll find and write the equation in slope-intercept form.

Slope-intercept form of an equation: y=mx+b, where m is the slope of the line and b is the y-intercept

To find the slope through two points, divide the difference of the y-coordinates by the difference of the x-coordinates

So far, the equation is

To find b, let's plug in one of the points

The equation is
