How do you write an equation of the line that passes through the point (3,2) and has a slope of -2?

color(orange)(2x + y = 8

Explanation:

Slope $m = - 2 , \left({x}_{1} - {y}_{1}\right) = \left(3 , 2\right)$

Point-Slope form is $y - {y}_{1} = m \left(x - {x}_{1}\right)$

$y - 2 = - 2 \cdot \left(x - 3\right)$

$y - 2 = - 2 x + 6$

color(orange)(2x + y = 8
