# What is the slope of a line with the equation (y + 3) = 5(x - 2)?

$\left(y + 3\right) = 5 \left(x - 2\right)$ has a slope of $5$
The general slope point form of a line through a point $\left(\textcolor{red}{\overline{x}} , \textcolor{red}{\overline{y}}\right)$ with slope $m$ is
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} y - \textcolor{red}{\overline{y}} = \textcolor{b l u e}{m} \left(x - \textcolor{red}{\overline{x}}\right)$
From this general form we can see that the given equation has a slope of $\textcolor{b l u e}{5}$
