## Answers ( )

Answer:First, we put the values of the given point into the general equation, giving:

0 = m * -1 + b …….(1)

Now plug in the given value of m into equation (1), giving:

0 = 2 + b ……..(2)

Solving equation (2), we find that b = -2.

Now we can write the required equation as:

y = -2x – 2
