Point-slope form of a line is written in the following form:
 

\(y-y_1=m(x-x_1)\)

 

\((x_1,y_1)\) is a Cartesian coordinate located on the said line.

 

\(m\) is the slope of the line.

 

Based on the information given, we already have this information. Just put the information together into a coherent equation.

 

\(y-1=-4(x-4)\)
