#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"point-slope form"# is.

#color(red)(bar(ul(|color(white)(2/2)color(black)(y-y_1=m(x-x_1))color(white)(2/2)|)))#

where m represents the slope and# (x_1,y_1)" a point on the line"#

#"here " m=-7/9" and " (x_1,y_1)=(-2,-9)#

#rArry-(-9)=-7/9(x-(-2))#

#rArry+9=-7/9(x+2)larrcolor(red)" in point-slope form"#
