what then is the equation that pass through the given ordered pairs? @ParthKohli

First find the slope, and then the y-intercept.

You can find the slope with its formula. \(\Large \color{MidnightBlue}{\Rightarrow {1 - 4 \over 3 + 3} }\) \(\Large \color{MidnightBlue}{\Rightarrow {-3 \over 6} = -{1 \over 2} }\)

Then, the standard equation is y = mx + b Slope is m, and it is -1/2. \(\Large \color{MidnightBlue}{\Rightarrow y = {-1 \over 2}x + b }\) Take any pair of points (x,y) given and substitute to find b.

Have you gotten the hint till now?

m=1-(4)/3-(-3) m=-3/3-(-3) m=-3/3+3 m=-3/6 m=-1/2
