Step 1

1 of 3In this question, we will first calculate the slope using the following formula:

$m=\left(\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\right)\tag{1}$

where,
$(x_1,y_1)$ and $(x_2,y_2)$ are two fixed points on the line.

Then, we will put the value of the slope, $m$, in the point-slope form given below and compute the line equation:

$y-y_1 = m(x-x_1)\tag{2}$

where, $(x_1,y_1)$ is a fixed point on the line.

[**Note**: We can use any of the two points given in equation $(1)$.]
