# How do you find the slope-intercept form of the equation of the line that passes through the given point (-2,-7) and has the slope 1?

Apr 2, 2015

The answer is: $y = x - 5$

The slope-intercept form is:

$y = m x + n$

The slope $m$ is already given as $1$

Lets plug the given point in the equation:

$- 7 = 1 \cdot \left(- 2\right) + n$

$n = - 5$

So the line equation is:

$y = x - 5$
