# What is the equation of the line passing through #(41,89)# and #(1,2)#?

##### 1 Answer

Use the two coordinate formula and rearrange into the form

#### Explanation:

**The Two Coordinate Formula**

The general form of the two coordinate formula is:

when you have two coordinates,

**Applied to your example**

The values in your example are:

Substituting these into the formula we get:

If we evaluate the denominators we get:

We can then multiply both sides by -87 to get rid of one fraction:

Next we can multiply both sides by -40 to get rid of the other fraction:

Next we can take away 3560 from both sides to get

Next we can multiply by -1 to flip the signs:

Finally we divide by 40 to get
