# How do you write the equation of a line in slope intercept, point slope and standard form given (1,-2), and (3,-8)?

##### 1 Answer

Please see below.

#### Explanation:

The **slope intercept form** of equation of a line is

**Point slope form** of equation of a line is

The general form of equation of a line is

For the equation of a line passing through two points

Hence selecting the **point slope form** of equation of desired line (choosing point

which in **general form** is

Note that had we chosen **point slope form** of equation could also have been

We can also write the equation as **slope intercept form** which shows slope as
