# How do you write an equation of a line passing through (0,2) and (-5,0)?

##### 1 Answer

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, we need to determine the slope of the line going through these two points. The slope can be found by using the formula:

Where

Substituting the values from the points in the problem gives:

We can now use the slope-intercept formula to write the equation for the line. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

Where

We calculated the slope above. The y-intercept is
