# How do you write an equation given a slope of 1/2 and the point (-2, 7)?

Apr 16, 2018

$x - 2 y + 16 = 0$

#### Explanation:

$\text{Point - Slope Form } \left(y - {y}_{1}\right) = m \cdot \left(x - {x}_{1}\right)$

$\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) = \left(- 2 , 7\right) , m = \left(\frac{1}{2}\right)$

$\left(y - 7\right) = \left(\frac{1}{2}\right) \cdot \left({x}_{- 2}\right)$

$2 y - 14 = x + 2$

$x - 2 y + 16 = 0$
