# How do you write an equation with slope of 5/3 and contains the point (-6, -2)?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

To do this, we use a linear equation called *point slope form*. This is basically another way of writing a linear equation, like

Here, we already have the elements: points on the line, and the slope. To solve, we just substitute these values into the equation and simplify:

And there you have it - the equation of the line with slope 5/3 and passing through the point (-6,-2).
