    the slope form for this is Y= m(y-1) (x-1) or you could use MX+B form as well. does this help?

    lets use the form y=mx+c slope m= 4/3 given now u need to find c only you have a point (7,-1) on it so put x=7 and y=-1 in the equation and find the value of c got this? if yes,can u tell me what value u got of c?

    ohh! slope point form,i missed that the slope point form is y-y1=m(x-x1) you have the values of m as 4/3 and (x1,y1)=(7,-1) just put the values,and u get the equation
