    the general form is \(y-y_1=m(x-x_1)\)

    where (x1,y1) is the point and m is slope.

    the answer is the second to last one. Simply plug them in. The first one u can simply get rid of because m does not equal -5/8.

    also what hartnn says is true. That is the original/correct way. But when given the multiply choice questions it may be easier to simply plug them in.
