##### 1 Answer

Use the slope-point formula to complete this question. See full explanation below.

#### Explanation:

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:

Where

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
