  1. The equation of the line with Slope = −6 and passing through (-5,−9) is y +9 = -6(x+5)

    Equation of a line

    The equation of a line in pint slope form is expressed as:
    y – y1 = m(x-x1)
    where
    m is the slope = -6
    (x1, y1)  is the point = (-5, -9 )
    Substitute into the formula
    y – (-9) = -6(x -(-5))
    y +9 = -6(x+5)
    Hence the equation of the line with Slope = −6 and passing through (-5,−9) is y +9 = -6(x+5)
