# How do you write an equation in slope-intercept form of the line through point P(-10,1) with slope -5?

##### 2 Answers

Since we're given the slope and a point, let's start with point slope form.

The point slope form is:

In our case

Slope intercept form is:

To rearrange in slope intercept form, add

This is pretty much slope intercept form with slope

If we are really picky, we might write:

The equation in slope-intercept form is

Slope-intercept form:

Substitute the known values into the equation, then solve for
