A straight line passes through the point (2, 0) and has gradient m. Write down the equation of the line.

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

The equation of a straight line can be given by;

`y=mx+c`

Where `m` is gradient and `c` is intercept.

Since this line posses through (2,0)

`0=mxx2+c`

`c=-2m`

*So the equation of the straight line is given as;*

`y=mx-2m =m(x-2)`
