#### Explanation:

**Make use of the point-slope form #y-y_1=m(x-x_1)# where #m# is the slope and #x_1# and #y_1# are the #x# and #y# values of the given point.**

**Substitute the values of #m#, #x_1#, and #y_1#.**

**Distribute #-1/4# to #(x-7)#.**

**Add #13# to both sides.**

**Add #7/4# and #13#.**
