# How do you write an equation in point-slope form for the given (-5, 0) with slope 4?

Jul 19, 2015

$y = 4 \left(x + 5\right)$

#### Explanation:

The point-slope form of a linear equation is $y - {y}_{1} = m \left(x - {x}_{1}\right)$, where $m$ is the slope, and $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right)$ is the point.

Substitute the given values into the equation.

$y - 0 = 4 \left(x - \left(- 5\right)\right)$ =

$y = 4 \left(x + 5\right)$
