# How do you write an equation of a line going through (-1,2), (3,-4)?

##### 1 Answer

or

#### Explanation:

To find a linear equation for the line going through these two points we can use the point-slope formula.

However, first we need to determine the slope of the line.

The slope can be found by using the formula:

Where

Substituting the two points given in the problem we can solve for

Now that we have the slope we can use the slope-point formula to write the equation for the line.

The point-slope formula states:

Where

Substituting the slope of

If we want this in the slope-intercept for we can solve for
