# 1 Answer

The point slope formula is: y -y_{1} = m(x - x_{1})

To use the point slope formula, substitute the slope for m, and the coordinates of the point for x_{1} and y_{1}

y - y_{1} = m(x - x_{1}) Point-slope formula

y - (-4) = 5(x - (-6)) Substitution

y + 4 = 5(x + 6) Subtracting negatives means adding positives

y + 4 = 5x + 30 Distribute the 5

y + 4 - 4 = 5x + 30 - 4 Subtract 4 from each side

y = 5x + 26 Simplify
