## anonymous 5 years ago write and equation for the line through (-5,2) with a slope of 0

1. anonymous

y - 2 = 0(x - (-5)) => y = 2.

y = - 5 is incorrect. See my reply.

4. anonymous

My mistake! You are correct! The answer is Y=2.

yeah, if you're given a slope and a point just plug into point slope formula. $y-y_1 = m(x-x_1) \text{ where } x_1,y_1$ is the x,y values of the point and m is the slope
