# How do you write the point slope form of the equation given m=-4 and (0,3)?

Jan 29, 2017

The point slope form of the equation of a line is:
$y = m \left(x - {x}_{1}\right) + {y}_{1}$
Where $m$ is the slope and $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right)$ is the point

#### Explanation:

Substitute -4 for the slope into the form:

$y = - 4 \left(x - {x}_{1}\right) + {y}_{1}$

Substitute 0 for ${x}_{1}$ and 3 for ${y}_{1}$

$y = - 4 \left(x - 0\right) + 3 \text{ } \leftarrow$ point slope form
