Write an equation in point slope form given: slope, m, = 1/5 and point (5, 2).
A. y + 2 = (1/5)(x  5)
B. y + 5 = (1/5)(x  2)
C. y – 5 = (1/5)(x + 2)
D. y – 5 = (1/5)(x  2)

The general form for point slope is:\[yy_1 = m(xx_1)\] Can you use the information given to plug in what you know to this equation?

Okay! Lets work on this. You know that m = slope, and you know that your slope is 1/5. So the first thing to do would be to plug in m to your equation to get: \[y  y_1 = 1/5(xx_1)\] now, the x1 and y1 are the x and y values from the ordered pair you're given. You do the same thing we did with the slope and plug those in for x1 and y1.
