If point A is (2,4) and point B is (3,2) and slope is -2 what would the equation be in standard form?

Use the formula

y -y1 = m(x-x1)

You can use either point and the slope.

y - 4 = -2(x-2)

y-4 = -2x + 4

y = -2x + 8

Now this is in y=mx+ b form

the question wants standard form. Can you finish from here?
