# In Exercises 3-6, find an equation of the line that passes through the points. Then sketch the line. ( − 2 , − 3 ) , ( 8 , 2 )

To determine

To calculate: The equation of line that passes through the given points (2,3),(8,2)

Explanation

Given Information:

Two points are given (2,3),(8,2).

Formula used:

The standard form of the line equation

y=mx+c

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

Calculation:

Consider the provided information,

Standard form of the line

y=mx+c

Substitute first (x,y)=(2,3) point and get one equation between m and c.

3=2m+c …… (1)

Now, substitute second (x,y)=(8,2) point and get one equation between m and c

2=8m+c …… (2)

Now, solve the equation,

Multiply the equation (2) by 2,

3=2m+c  2=8m+c5=10m1
