## Answers ( )

1. Answer:

y-4=-5/4(x-(-4))

Step-by-step explanation:

Slope form is y-y1=m(x-x1)

X1and Y1 are a point on the line and M is the slope

2. Answer:

y=-5/4x-1

Step-by-step explanation:

Since we have a point and the slope, we can use the point slope formula

m is the slope, y1 is the y coordinate of the point, and x1 is the x coordinate of the point

We know the slope is -5/4.

The point (-4,4) compared to (x,y): -4 is the x coordinate, and 4 is the y coordinate

y-4=-5/4(x–4)

y-4=-5/4(x+4)

Now, we need to solve for y, so we can get the equation in point slope form: y=mx+b

Distribute the -5/4

y-4= -5/4*x +4*-5/4

y-4= -5/4x-5

Add 4 to both sides

y-4+4=-5/4x-5+4

y= -5/4x-1
