Line p passes through A(-2, -4) and has a slope of .  What is the standard form of the equation for line p?

The equation can be obtained from the slope intercept form, y-y1 = m(x -x1)

where, m is the slope = -1/2
and x1 and y1 are co-ordinate of the point (-2,-4)

so, the required equation is y-(-4) = -1/2 ( x - (-2))
y+4=-1/2(x+2)
2y+8 = -x -2
2y +x = -10
the required standard form of equation is x+2y =-10


Please let me know incase you have any doubt.
