the slope is -5
Okay so we will go with that.
Now that we have the slope as -5, we can substitute m for that.
\[\large y = -5x + b\]
Usually, in this case, what I would do is choose a coordinate from the two that are already given. So we will use (-2,-1)...
As you can see that with -5 there is a "x". We will substitute that x with -2 and the y before the equal sign will be replaced with the y-coordinate (or -1).
\[\large -1 = -5(-2) + b\]
Now you need to solve for b.
So I'm multiplying -5 and -2 and that gives me 10
yes go on...
I don't know how to solve for b...I don't know what to do next
