Question

For the equation y - 3 = 2(x + 4), choose the correct statement.

  1. The line has m = 2 passing through the point (4, -3)
  2. The line has m = 2 passing through the point (3, -4)
  3. The line has m = 2 passing through the point (-4, 3)
  4. The line has m = 2 passing through the point (-3, 4)

Hint:

Given the line  y - y1 = m (x - x1)
it is having slope as m and passes through ( x1 , y1 ) .

The correct answer is: The line has m = 2 passing through the point (-4, 3)


    The equation y - 3 = 2(x + 4).
    Step 1 : Point-slope form of equation of a line is y - y1 = m (x - x1)
    Step 2 : Comparing
    The line has m = 2
    and x1 = -4 and y1 = 3
    so , slope is 2 and it is passing through the point (-4, 3)

    Line is having slope as m and passes through ( x1 , y1 ) .
