    the equation is.. y-y1=m(x-x1) first find the m m is the slope..

    slope=(y2-y1)/(x2-x1) (3,0)(0,-4) x1=3 y1=0 x2=0 y2=-4 so find it slope

    Vertical lines have the equation: x = x-intercept Horizontal lines have the equation: y = y-intercept

    m=-4/3 so we use that (3,0) the equation is.. y-0=-4/3(x-3) y=-4/3x+4

    @DecentNabeel there will be two different equations, one for each line. I think you did the equation for the line that passes through the given points.

    I'm looking for two different equations, one for line m, another for line n

    For m, since it's vertical the equation is x = x-intercept. The x-intercept is 3, so the equation is x = 3.

    follow the same pattern for n, but since it's a horizontal line it's y = y-intercept
