# What is the slope intercept form of the line passing through (2,-5)  with a slope of -2 ?

$y = - 2 x - 1$
$y = m x + c$ is the general form of a line, where m is the slope and c is the y-intercept (the point where x is zero and the line crosses the y axis).
For the given point, $- 5 = - 2 \cdot 2 + c$
$\implies c = - 1$
Therefore $y = - 2 x - 1$
