## anonymous one year ago What is the equation in standard form of the line which passes through (4, –2) and has a slope of –3?

$$\bf \begin{array}{lllll} &x_1&y_1&x_2&y_2\\ % (a,b) &({\color{red}{ 4}}\quad ,&{\color{blue}{ 2}})\quad \end{array} \\\quad \\ % slope = m slope = {\color{green}{ m}}= \cfrac{rise}{run} \implies -3 \\ \quad \\ % point-slope intercept y-{\color{blue}{ y_1}}={\color{green}{ m}}(x-{\color{red}{ x_1}})\qquad \textit{plug in the values and move everything to the left}\\ \qquad \uparrow\\ \textit{point-slope form}$$
