# How do you graph the line given (-1,4), m = 2/5?

y=$\frac{2}{5} x$+b

#### Explanation:

consider y=mx+b
Given the points and the slope value (m), the remaining variable is b.

To find b plug in the point and m values:

$4 = \frac{2}{5} \left(- 1\right) + b$
$4 = - \frac{2}{5} + b$
$\frac{22}{5}$ OR $4 \frac{2}{5} = b$
thus,
$y = \frac{2}{5} x + \frac{22}{5}$
