# How do you write an equation of a line through point (-2,-7) and m=4/5?

Jan 11, 2017

$y + 7 = \frac{4}{5} \left(x + 2\right)$

#### Explanation:

This is known as the point-slope form of the equation for the line.

It's general form 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 you are given,
