## Answers ( No )

y – 2 = – 2(x – 7)

the equation of a line in ‘ point- slope form ‘ is

y – b = m(x – a)

where m is the slope and (a, b) a point on the line

to calculate m use the gradient formula

m = (y₂ – y₁ ) / (x₂ – x₁ )

with (x₁, y₁ ) = (6, 4 ) and (x₂, y₂ ) = (7, 2)

m = = -2

using m = – 2 and (a, b) = (7, 2)

y – 2 = – 2(x – 7 ) ← in point-slope form
