# How do you write an equation of the line in point slope form with slope = -5 (9,0)?

Jun 26, 2015

The point-slope form of the line with the given values is $y - 0 = - 5 \left(x - 9\right)$.

#### Explanation:

The point-slope form of a line is $y - {y}_{1} = m \left(x - {x}_{1}\right)$.

The slope, $m = - 5$.

${x}_{1} , {y}_{1} = \left(9 , 0\right)$

Substitute the given values into the equation.

$y - 0 = - 5 \left(x - 9\right)$
