Find an equation of the line that passes through the point (7, 6) and has the slope m = -5 / 2
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
General equation of line in slope intercept form is y = mx + c
where m is the slope and c is the y intercept
here m = -5/2
so, y = (5/2)x+c
put (7,6) in the equation
6 = (-5*7/2) + c
c = 6 + 35/2 = 47/2
so, equation of line is : y = (-5/2)x+ 47/2
or, 5x+2y = 47
