Question

Write the equation of the line in point-slope form that passes through the point (4, -7) and has the slope -1/4.

  1. y +7 = -1/4(x - 4)
  2. y - 4 = -1/4(x + 7)
  3. y + 4 = -1/4(x - 7)
  4. y - 7 = -1/4(x - 4)

Hint:

Given point (x1, y1) and slope m
The equation will be y - y1 = m (x - x1)

The correct answer is: y +7 = -1/4(x - 4)


    The given point (4, -7) slope m = -1/4
    The point –slope form of linear equation is represented by y - y1 = m (x - x1), where m is the slope.
    Step1: Substitute point and slope in equation.
    y +7 = -1/4(x - 4).
    y +7 = -1/4(x - 4) is the desired equation in slope-point form.

    The equation will be y - y1 = m (x - x1)
