## anonymous 3 years ago how to make (5,6),(2,0),(0,-4),and(-2,-8) into an equation

1. anonymous

is it geometry???

2. anonymous

3. anonymous

if it is a line you can

4. anonymous

equation of straight line?

5. anonymous

i can. but can you post screenshot of the question?

6. anonymous

is it one equation or two??

Do you know how to find the equation of a line, when you are given two points?

9. anonymous

yes y=ax+b and a=f(x1)-f(x2)/x1-x2

It's a linear relation; only two points are needed. Start with slope formula, $$\large m=\frac{y-y_1}{x-x_1}$$ Then you can rearrange that to $$\large y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$$
