## anonymous one year ago What is the point-slope equation of the line with slope that goes through the point (-2, 7)?

1. pooja195

Whats the slope?

2. pooja195

Is it given? Because without it you can't do this...

3. anonymous

5/2

4. pooja195

ok so we use the point slope formula >:) $\huge~\rm~y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$

5. anonymous

yes

6. pooja195

m=slope so in place of m we have 5/2 x1=-2 y1=7 can you substituite these values into the equation?

7. pooja195

Need help?
