# How do you write a standard form equation for a line who's slope is 2 and that passes through the point (3,1)?

May 27, 2018

Standard form of the equation is color(brown)(2x - y = 5

#### Explanation:

Point-Slope form of equation is

(y - y_1 = m * (x - x_1)

Given : $m = 2 , {x}_{1} = 3 , {y}_{1} = 1$

$y - 1 = 2 \cdot \left(x - 3\right)$

$2 x - y = 6 - 1 = 5$

Standard form of linear equation is $a x + b y = c$

Standard form of the given equation is color(brown)(2x - y = 5
