# In Exercises 3-6, find an equation of the line that passes through the points. Then sketch the line. ( 1 , 3 ) , ( 4 , 0 )

To determine

To calculate: The equation of the line that passes through the given points (1,3),(4,0).

Explanation

Given Information:

Two points are given (1,3),(4,0).

Formula used:

The standard form of the line equation

y=mx+c

Where m is slope and c is intercept of x-axis.

Calculation:

Standard form of the line equation

y=mx+c

Substitute first point and get one equation between m and c.

3=m+c …… (1)

Now, substitute second point and get one equation between m and c.

0=4m+c …… (2)

Now, solve the equation,

3=m+c0=4m+c3=3m1=m         ¯

Now, put the value of m in equation (2):
