How do you get the equation of the line that:

passes through the point (- 4, 11) and has a slope of -3/4?

passes through the point (- 4, 11) and has a slope of -3/4?

Point-slope form is y - y1 = m(x - x1)

m is the slope

(x1,y1) are the coordinates of the given point

(- 4,11), m = -3/4

y - 11 = (-3/4)[x - (-4)] {substituted into point-slope form}

y - 11 = (-3/4)(x + 4) {simplified double negative signs}

y - 11 = (-3/4)x - 3 {used distributive property}

**y = (-3/4)x + 8**{added 11 to both sides}
