# Which equation has a slope of-7 and passes through the point(0,5)?

Nov 12, 2016

$y = - 7 x + 5$

#### Explanation:

In the general equation $y = m x + c$
$m$ is the gradient and $c$ is the y intercept
$y = - 7 x + c$ when $x = 0 , y = 5$ because the point (0,5) is on the line. Substitute these values to confirm the equation. graph{-7x+5 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}
