\(\Large y-y_1=m(x-x_1)\) where m is the slope (x1, y1) is the given point

use what you were given and plug it into the equation

as (x1,y1)=(2,-1) amd m=-5 n now put them into the above equation of Zale101

so y+1=-5x+15
Zale101
  • Zale101
how did you get 15?

i plugged in 3 instead of 5 one sec

  • anonymous
so y+1=-5x-10

Oh okay, and by the way, you don't need to distribute because your choices aren't distributed. They just want you to plug it and get the signs right.
