##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

Start with a two point form (based on slope)

Which simplifies as

Standard form of a linear equation is

Converting

#### Explanation:

The standard form of an equation is given by;

To find the equation of line passing through the points (-1,5) and (0,8), we need to used given formula;

where m = slope and given by the formula;

Now, Let's assume that

First find the slope of line using slope formula, we get;

Now, plug

or,

or,

Add 5 on both side, we get,

or,

or,

Subtract 3x on both side, we get

or,

This is our required equation in standard form.
