# What is the equation of the line with slope  m= 5/17  that passes through  (-1,0) ?

Jul 3, 2016

$y = \frac{5}{17} x + \frac{5}{17}$

#### Explanation:

The requested equation is obtained by:

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

so, in this case, it becomes

$y - 0 = \frac{5}{17} \left(x + 1\right)$

$y = \frac{5}{17} x + \frac{5}{17}$
