9.11 The Two Points Form of A Line

Equation of a line passing through the points A(x1 , y1) and B(x2 , y2) is (x - x1) (y2 - y1) = (y - y1) (x2 - x1).

Example:
Find the equation of line passing through (3,4) and (5,6).
Solution:
Formula for finding the equation of line when two points are given is
(x - x1) (y2 - y1) = (y - y1) (x2 - x1).
Given that,
(x1 , y1) = (3,4)
(x2 , y2) = (5,6)
Substituting these values in the formula, we get
(x - 3) (6 - 4) = (y - 4) (5 - 3)
(x - 3) 2 = (y - 4) 2
2x - 6 = 2y - 8
2x - 2y + 2 = 0
Therefore, the 2x - 2y + 2 = 0 is the required line.

Q 1: Find the equation of line passing through (2,5) and (1,6).
None of these
x + y - 7 = 0
x + y + 7 = 0
x - y - 7 = 0

Q 2: Find the equation of line passing through (-2,1) and (3,4).
5x - 3y - 7 = 0
3y - 5x + 7 = 0
3x - 5y + 7 = 0
5x - 3y + 7 = 0

Q 3: Find the equation of line passing through (4,5) and (2,6).
x - 2y + 6 = 0
x - y - 3 = 0
x - y + 3 = 0
2x - y - 6 = 0

Q 4: Find the equation of line passing through (5,6) and (4,5).
x - y + 1 = 0
-x + y - 1 = 0
x + y - 1 = 0
x + y + 1 = 0

Q 5: Find the equation of line passing through (-2,0) and (0,4).
x - 2y + 4 = 0
2x - y + 4 = 0
x + 2y + 4 = 0
2x + y + 4 = 0

Q 6: Find the equation of line passing through (3,4) and (-5,1).
3x - 8y + 23 = 0
8x - 3y + 23 = 0
3x + 8y + 23 = 0
8x + 3y + 23 = 0
