    To find the equation of a line given a point \[(x _{0},y _{0})\], you can use the formula: \[y-y_{0} = m(x-x _{0})\] where m = the slope of the line. So you just sub in your point and you slope and solve for y.

    An alternate way is to substitute your given point and slope into the equation y=mx+b and solve for b, and then just rewrite the equation in the proper form.
