# What is the equation of the line with slope  m= 1/7  that passes through  (-5,18) ?

Mar 14, 2016

$y = \frac{x}{7} + \frac{131}{7}$

#### Explanation:

The line equation should be, having 1/7 as slope:
$y = \frac{x}{7} + b$
Write that this line passing at point (-5, 18):
$18 = - \frac{5}{7} + b .$ Find b.
$b = 18 + \frac{5}{7} = \frac{131}{7}$
Line equation: $y = \frac{x}{7} + \frac{131}{7}$
