# What is the equation of the line with slope # m= -9/5 # that passes through # (-10,23) #?

##### 1 Answer

Point-slope form:

Slope-intercept form:

#### Explanation:

**Point-Slope Form**

When you have the slope and one point on a line, you can use the point-slope form to find the equation for the line. The general equation is

Substitute the given values into the point-slope equation.

Simplify.

**Converting to Slope-Intercept Form**

If desired, you can convert from point-slope form to slope-intercept form by solving for
