In Exercises 9 to 24, find an equation of the line described. Leave the solution in the form Ax+By = C .The line contains (-2, 0) and (4, 3).

To determine

Find the equation of the line which contains (-2, 0) and (4, 3).

Explanation

The general equation of a line in Point-Slope form is y-y1=m(x-x1)

Here,

m is the slope of a line

(x1,y1) is the point.

To use Point-Slope form, it is required to find the slope using the equation,

m=y-y1x-x1

From the given points,

Let x1=-2

y1=0

x=4

y=3

Substitute x1, y1, x and y to find the slope.

So,

m=3-04-(-2)

m=34 + 2

m=36

m=12

Now the general equation ca
