# What is the equation of the line passing through (-3,-2 ) and (1, -5)?

The 2 points here are (-3 ,-2) and (1 ,-5)

We can use either of the points (-3 ,-2), (1 ,-5) as the point on the line since the line passes through both of them.

Substitute these values into the equation.

Distributing and simplifying gives an alternative version of the equation.
