Find the equation of the line with slope = -6 and passing through (-4,-7). Write your equation in point-slope AND slope-intercept forms.

 

I believe the y=-6x-31 is the slope intercept.. but I am not sure of the point slope..

 

Thx.

yep thats the slope intercept

pretty sure point slope is in the form of
y-y1=m(x-x1)
x1 and y1 is any point on that line so we can use point (-4,-7) and plug the slope into m to get:


y-(-4)=-6(x-(-7))
y+4=-6(x+7)
is one possible answer
