What is the equation of the line with slope # m= -2/7 # that passes through # (3/4,-1/7) #? Algebra Forms of Linear Equations Write an Equation Given the Slope and a Point 1 Answer moutar · Noah G Jan 10, 2016 Answer: #4x+14y=1# Explanation: Use the formula #y-y_1=m(x-x_1)# where m is the gradient and #(x_1,y_1)# is any point on the line and you get: #y + 1/7 = -2/7(x-3/4)# #7y+1=-2(x-3/4)# #7y+1=-2x+3/2# #14y+2=-4x+3# #4x+14y=1# Related questions When writing an equation of a line, if I know more than one point, does it matter which one I ...
