Write the equation of the line that contains the indicated pair of points. Express the final equation in standard form. (−2, 5), (3, −3). (2,5) , (3,3) y2  y1  = slope x2  x1 3  5  = slope {substituted coordinates into slope formula} 3  (2) 8  = slope {subtracted in numerator and denominator} 5 (2,5) and slope = 8/5 {a point and the slope} y  y1 = m(x  x1) {pointslope form} y  5 = (8/5)[x  (2)] {substituted point and slope into pointslope form} 5y + 25 = 8(x + 2) {multiplied entire equation by 5 to eliminate fraction} 5y + 25 = 8x + 16 {used distributive property} 8x + 5y = 9 {added 5y and subtracted 16 from each side}  Algebra House Comments are closed.
