# How do you write the equation in point slope form given m=3 (-4,-1)?

$y + 1 = 3 \left(x + 4\right) \text{ " }$Equation in Point-Slope Form

#### Explanation:

From the given
We have a point $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) = \left(- 4 , - 1\right)$
with slope $m = 3$

The point-slope form of the line is:

$y - {y}_{1} = m \left(x - {x}_{1}\right)$

just substitute the given

$y - {y}_{1} = m \left(x - {x}_{1}\right)$

$y - \left(- 1\right) = 3 \left(x - \left(- 4\right)\right)$

then simplify

$y + 1 = 3 \left(x + 4\right) \text{ " }$Equation in Point-Slope Form

God bless....I hope the explanation is useful...
