## anonymous one year ago What is the equation of a line that has a slope of -5 and passes through the point (0, 2)? a) y=-5x b) y=-5x+2 c) y=2x-5

1. pooja195

$\huge~\rm~y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$

2. pooja195

We need to use this formula it is called the point slope formula m=slope (x1,y1)

3. anonymous

okay so, so y=mx+b right... so in this case y=-5x + b

4. anonymous

plug in values for x and y of your point in this equation

5. anonymous

(2=-5(0)+b)

6. anonymous

solve for b

7. anonymous

b=2

8. anonymous

so y=-5x +2

Or just give the answer -_-
