## anonymous 5 years ago Write the slope intercept equationfor the line that passes through (2,-4) and has slope -7/2

$y=-\frac{7}{2}x+3$

The point-gradient form of a line is$y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$Here, m=-7/2 and $(x_1,y_1)=(2,-4)$So, upon substitution,$y+4=-\frac{7}{2}(x-2) \rightarrow y=-\frac{7}{2}x+3$
