# What is the equation of the line with slope  m= 13/17  that passes through  (0,-1) ?

Nov 27, 2015

$y = \frac{13}{17} x - 1$

#### Explanation:

The general equation for a line, knowing the slope and a point, is

$y - {y}_{0} = m \left(x - {x}_{0}\right)$.

$y + 1 = \frac{13}{17} \left(x - 0\right) \to y = \frac{13}{17} x - 1$
