How do you write an equation in point slope form that passes through (0, -4) with slope -7?
In point slope form, the equation of the line is
This is of the form
If we are less strict about it, this is written more cleanly as:
Given a point
the point-slope form of its linear equation is
Given the point
This, of course, could be simplified; perhaps as
but this loses some of the explicit information in the original form.
