# What is the equation of the line with slope  m= -3/49  that passes through  (13/7,1/21) ?

Jun 25, 2018

$y - \frac{1}{21} = - \frac{3}{49} \left(x - \frac{1}{21}\right)$

#### Explanation:

Use the point-slope form for a linear equation:

$y - {y}_{1} = m \left(x - {x}_{1}\right)$,

where:

$m$ is the slope, and $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right)$ is the point.

Plug in the known values.

$y - \frac{1}{21} = - \frac{3}{49} \left(x - \frac{1}{21}\right)$

If you want to convert to the slope-intercept form, solve the point-slope form for $y$.
