Math HELP!

Point 1 (x1,y1)= (3,2)
Point 2 (x2,y2)= (5,6)

Slope: m=rise/run ; m=y2-y1/xs-x1 ; m= 6-2/5-3 = 2

Point slope form: (y-y1)=m(x-x1)
I used point 1 so, y-2=2(x-3)
Answer: y=2x-4 and the answer would be the same if I used point 2 (5,6)

MY QUESTION IS: Using the points given above, how do you put the points in standard equation of a line

  1. what? You do the hard stuff, and can't rearrange terms?

    y = 2x-4
    2x-y = 4
