# How do you write the point slope form of the equation of the line that passes through (4,2) and parallel to y=-3/4x - 5?

Your line must have the same slope (=same inclination) of the given line and must intercept point ($4 , 2$):
$y - {y}_{0} = m \left(x - {x}_{0}\right)$
$y - 2 = - \frac{3}{4} \left(x - 4\right)$ or:
$y = - \frac{3}{4} x + 5$
