Answer :

Given point = (-4, 3) and slope, m = 1/2


We know that the point (x, y) lies on the line with slope m through the fixed point (x0, y0), if and only if, its coordinates satisfy the equation y – y0 = m (x – x0)


y – 3 = 1/2 (x – (-4))


y – 3 = 1/2 (x + 4)


2(y – 3) = x + 4


2y – 6 = x + 4


x + 4 – (2y – 6) = 0


x + 4 – 2y + 6 = 0


x – 2y + 10 = 0


Ans. The equation of the line is x – 2y + 10 = 0.
