What is the equation in point-slope form of the line passing through (4, 0) and (2, 6)?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

point slope form is (y-y1) = m(x-x1)  where m is the slope and x1,y1 is a point on the line.

We need to find the slope first  which is given by


m =( y2-y1 ) /(x2 - x1)

We have two points (x1,y1) = (4,0)  and (x2,y2) = (2,6)

m = (6 -0 ) / (2-4)  = 6/-2  = -3

substituting m = -3 and (x1,y1) = (4,0) in slope point form

The equation in the slope point form will be

y-0 = -3 (x-4)

y = -3(x-4) choice 3 


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
