Find an equation of the line containing the given pair of points
(-5,0) and (0,2)
Pairs are (-5,0) and (0,2)
Where X1 = -5 Y1 = 0 X2 = 0 Y2 = 2
Now first we find the slope 'm' using the formula m =
Now putting the values in formula then we get
m = 2/5
Now we have the slope then we can find the value of constant 'c' using the formula which is
Y = mX + c
putting the values of X, Y and m then
0 = 2/5(-5) + c [Note that values of X and Y can be put from any one of pair]
0 = -2 + c
c = 2
Now we put the values of c , m , X and Y in equation 1 to find the equation of line using the slope/intercept formula which is Y - Y1 = m(X - X1) .................1
Putting the values in 1, we get
Y - 0 = 2/5(X - (-5))
Y = 2/5(X + 5)
Multiply by 5 on both sides, we get
5Y = 2(X + 5)
5Y = 2X + 10
Or 2X - 5Y + 10 = 0
which is the equation of line.
