How do you write the equation in point slope form given ( -2 , 5 ) , ( 4 , -3 )?
Write point-slope form of a linear equation given points
Note that the general form of point-slope form is:
First, we need to find the slope, m:
We know that
So, we can plug in our given values:
Now, we choose one of the points to write the equation in point slope form, (I will write both possible equations in point-slope form):
