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

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"rearrange "4x-5y=3" into this form"#

#rArr-5y=-4x+3larrcolor(blue)"divide all terms by "-5#

#rArry=4/5x-3/5larrcolor(blue)"in slope intercept form"#

#rArr"slope "=m=4/5#
