What is the slope intercept form of the line passing through #(12,7) # with a slope of #-1/5 #?
The slope-point form of the line given slope
Let us plug in the given values
Remember this is not what we need. We need the equation to be in slope intercept form.
The slope intercept form :
We now have to simplify our equation from slope point form to get our answer.
Adding 7 to both the side
