# How do you write an equation in standard form for a line passing through B(6, 2), m = -1/2?

$x + 2 y = 10$

#### Explanation:

You can use the general relationship:
$y - {y}_{0} = m \left(x - {x}_{0}\right)$

Where:

$m =$ slope
(${x}_{0} , {y}_{0}$) are the coordinates of your point.

$y - 2 = - \frac{1}{2} \left(x - 6\right)$
$y = - \frac{1}{2} x + 5$
$x + 2 y = 10$
