# What is the equation of the line with slope  m= -7/3  that passes through  (-7/9,2/3) ?

Jun 13, 2018

The line is of the form $y = - \frac{7}{3} x + c$

Put (-7/9,2/3) into the equation

$\frac{2}{3} = - \frac{7}{3} \times - \frac{7}{9} + c$

$\frac{2}{3} = \frac{49}{27} + c$

$c = - \frac{31}{27}$

$y = - \frac{7}{3} x - \frac{31}{27}$
