# How do you write an equation in standard form for the line through (1,3) and (-10,6)?

##### 1 Answer

Start by determining the slope of the line through the given points;

then write the equation for the line in point-slope form;

finally convert to standard form.

**Slope**

The slope of a line is determined by the difference between 2 y-coordinate values divided by the difference between 2 corresponding x-coordinate values.

Given the points

Slope:

**Point-Slope Form**

The point-slope form for a line with slope

For the given values this becomes

**Standard Form for Linear Equation**

The standard form for a linear equation is
