What is the equation of line that has a slope of 2, and contains the point (4,6) ?

**Substitute the coordinates and slope into slope-intercept form, to find the y-intercept.**

**y = mx + b**

6 = 2(4) + b {substituted into slope-intercept form}

6 = 8 + b {multiplied 2 by 4}

b = -2 {subtracted 8 from each side}

slope = 2 and y-intercept = -2

**y = 2x - 2**{substituted slope and y-intercept into slope-intercept form}
