# What is the equation of the line with slope  m= 13/17  that passes through  (0,0) ?

Jan 11, 2016

$y = \frac{13}{17} x$

#### Explanation:

Given a point

P=(P_x;P_y)=(0;0)

and a slope coefficient

$m = \frac{13}{17}$

The general line equation is

$\left(y - {P}_{y}\right) = m \left(x - {P}_{x}\right)$

$\therefore \left(y - 0\right) = \frac{13}{17} \left(x - 0\right)$

$\therefore y = \frac{13}{17} x$
