How do you find an equation of the line having the given slope and containing the given point m=-8, (4,5)?
Because we have been given a slope and a point on the line we can use the point-slope formula to complete this problem.
The point-slope formula states:
Substituting the information we are provided gives us this equation:
If we want to put this in the more familiar form of the slope-intercept form we can solve for
