Given:Point on straight line = (-6,4)

Gradient = -2

To find:The equation of the line.

Solution:Point-slope form:If a line passes through the point with slope m, then the equation of the line isThe line passes through the point (-6,4) with slope -2. So, the equation of the line is:

Adding 4 on both sides, we get

Therefore, the equation of the line is .
