# What is this equation in point-slope form of the line passing through (-2,1) and (4,13)

QUESTION POSTED AT 16/04/2020 - 06:31 PM

The answer is:  " y = 2x + 5 ".
_________________________________________
{Refer to the graph of the equation; as an "attached image".}.
___________________________________________
Explanation:
___________________________________________
Note: The equation of a line; in "point slope form"; also known as:  "slope-intercept form";  is: " y = mx + b "

which is:
_________________________________
" y = mx + b " ;

in which:
"y" is a single, "stand-alone" variable on the "left-hand side of the equation"; "m" is the coefficient of "x"; also:
"m" is the slope of the line; which is what we want to solve for;
"b" is the "y-intercept"; or more precisely, the value of "x"
(that is; the "x-coordinate") of the point at which "y = 0";
that is, the value of "x" ; or the "x-coordinate" of the point at which
the graph of the equation crosses the "x-axis".
________________________________________
Given the coordinate of any TWO (2) points on the line:

Calculate the slope, "m"  =  (y₂ − y₁) / (x₂ − x₁) ;

Given the two points: "(-2,1)" and "(4,13)" ;
________________________________________
(x₁, y₁) ↔ (-2, 1) ;  x₁, = -2 ;   y₁ = 1 ;

(x₂, y₂) ↔ (4, 13);  x₂ = 4 ; y₂ = 13 ;
__________________________________
→  m =  (y₂ − y₁) / (x₂ − x₁)  = (13 − 1) /  [(4 − (-2)]  ;
= 12 / (4+2) ;
= 12 / 6 ;
= 2 ;
__________________________________
So, we know that:  "m = 2" .
_________________________
In "point-slope form" :
__________________________
→ " y = mx + b " ;

So, we can write:  y = 2x + b ;

We need to solve for "b".
____________________________
→   When "y = 0" , what does "x" equal?  The answer to this question, is the value for "b" (the "y-intercept" of the line of graph of this equation).
____________________________
One method is to plot these points on a graph;  and, using our known slope, "m = 2" ;  visually inspect the graph, plot other points; noting that the slope, "2", is "rise over the run"; i.e. the "change in y" over "the change in x";
(i.e. "Δy /Δxgraph the equation) ; and determine the "x-coordinate" of the y-intercept).

The other method is to solve for "b" ; as follows:
____________________________________________

→  y = 2x + b ;

Subtract "2x" from EACH SIDE of the equation; to isolate "b" on one side of the equation; and to solve for "b" ;
______________________________________

→  y − 2x = 2x + b − 2x ;
______________________________
to get:  y − 2x = b ;
________________________
↔  b = y − 2x ;

↔ b = -2x + y ;

To solve for "b" ; take EITHER of the 2 points given;  and plug in the values for "x" and "y" into the equation, to solve for "b"
________________________________________
Let us try:  " (-2, 1) " :   x = -2,  y = 1  ;
________________________________________
→ b = -2x + y = -2(-2) + 1 = 4 + 1 = 5 ; →  b = 5 .
________________________________________
Alternately, and to confirm that "b = 5" ;  (Check our work):
________________________________________________
Let us try the second point:  " (4, 13) " :
________________________________________________
→ b = -2x + y =  -2(4) + 13 = -8 + 13 = 5 ;  → b = 5 . Yes!
_________________________________________________
So; we have:   →  y = 2x + b ;   and we know:  " b = 5" ; so we can write the equation:
__________________________________
" y = 2x + 5 " .
__________________________________
The answer is:  " y = 2x + 5 ".
