# Find the Equation of the Line Through the Points A(-1,3) and B(0,2). Hence, Show that the Pointa,B and C (1,1) Are Collinear. - Mathematics

Sum

Find the equation of the line through the points A(-1,3) and B(0,2). Hence, show that the pointA,B and C (1,1) are collinear.

#### Solution

Slop of line AB=m= (2-3)/(0-1(-1))=(-1)/1=-1

Using the slope-point from, the equation of line Ab is given by

y-y_1=m(x-x_1)

i.e. y-3=-1[x-(-1)]

i.e.y-3=-1(x+1)

i.e.y-3=-x-1

i.e. x+y=2

Now, slope of line BC=(1-2)/(1-0)=-1/1=-1

Since, slope of line Ab= slope of line BC, Point A, B and C are collinear.
