    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!

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

    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)
