Find the point-slope form of the equation of the line that passes through (-1, -5) with a slope of 3.

A. 2x - 5y = -35

B. y - 3 = 2525(x + 10)

C. y = 2525x + 7

D. y - 2525x - 7 = 0

y=mx + b is point - slpe form m=slope b = y-axis intercept

y = 3x+b

-5 = 3 (-1) + b solve for b

-5 = -3 + b

-2 = b

y = 3x -2
