What is the equation of the line with slope # m= -5/6 # that passes through # (-5/12,4/3) #?
Starting with the general "slope-point" form:
for a line with slope
we can insert the given values
Theoretically we could claim that this is the answer but it's ugly, so let's convert it into "standard form" (
We can see by looking at the right side that to clear the denominators we will need to multiply both sides by
