Note that a non-vertical line has infinitely many point-slope form equations.

To find the slope, see Leivin's answer.

This line has slope #-7/3# and, like every line, contains infinitely many points.

Among those points are the two we were goven, leading us to equations:

#y-3= (-7/3)(x+5)#


Either equation is in point slope form and the equations both refer to (describe, define) the same line.
