#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in

#color(blue)"point-slope form"# is.

#color(red)(bar(ul(|color(white)(2/2)color(black)(y-y_1=m(x-x_1))color(white)(2/2)|)))#

where m represents the slope and# (x_1,y_1)" a point on the line"#

#"here "m=2" and "(x_1,y_1)=(-3,4)# substitute these values into the equation.

#y-4=2(x-(-3))#

#rArry-4=2(x+3)larrcolor(red)" in point-slope form"#
