# How do you write the point slope form of the equation given (5,-6) and (2,3)?

##### 2 Answers

See the solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, determine the slope of the line. The slope can be found by using the formula:

Where

Substituting the values from the points in the problem gives:

The point-slope formula states:

Where

Substituting the slope we calculated and the values from the first point in the problem gives:

Solution 1)

We can also substitute the slope we calculated and the values from the second point in the problem giving:

Solution 2)

#### Explanation:

First, find the slope between the points. You can find slope using:

Plug into the formula:

Now we have the slope. We can now plug into the point-slope form which is:

It doesn't really matter which point we plug in so I'll plug in

Distribute the
