# How do you write an equation of a line through: (2,4) and (5,1)?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

To write this equation we can use the point-slope formula. To use this formula we must first determine the slope.

The slope can be found by using the formula:

Where

Using the two points given in the problem the slope is:

Now we can use the point-slope formula to determine the equation:

The point-slope formula states:

Where

Using the slope we calculate and one of the points gives:

Solving for
