Write the equation of the line that has the indicated slope and contains the indicated point. Express the final equation in standard form.
m = 3/5,(-1,4)
Solution: Standard form is Ax + By = C. Slope Intercept form is y=mx+b where m is the slope. So, we have that m=3/5. If we put the coordinate of the point in slope intercept form we get:
4=-1*3/5+b, and hence b=4+3/5 or b=23/5.
Now, we have that y=(3/5)*x+(23/5) or 5y=3x+23 or , in the standard form, -3x+5y=23....
