## anonymous one year ago Use the point-slope form to write an equation of the line with the given properties. Leave the answer in point-slope form. Slope −7; passes through (9, −2)

I got y=-7x+61 but it says its wrong

2. Nnesha

point slope form is $\huge\rm y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$ where is m is slope and $\large\rm (x_1,y_1)$ is the the order pair (9,-2) so plug in!

3. Nnesha

that's the slope intercept form but you have to write in point-slope form Leave the answer in point-slope form

oh okay thankyou

5. Nnesha

np :=) let me know if you want me to check ur answer :=)

How do I put it into point-slope form? Do I just put the answer in it?

this is the point slope form $\huge\rm y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$ where is m is slope and $\large\rm (x_1,y_1)$ is the the order pair (9,-2) so substitute m for -7 and (x_1 ,y_1) for (9,-2)
