# How do you find an equation in point-slope form of the line having the specified slope m = -7 and containing the point (0, -4)?

y= -7x-4

Standard slope intercept form is y= mx+b. Here m= -7. hence it is y= -7x+b. Since the line passes through (0,-4), plug in x=0, y=-4 in this equation to get b=-4. Hence the required equation would be y= -7x-4

To find an equation in point-slope form of the line with slope ( m = -7 ) and containing the point ( (0, -4) ), use the formula:

[ y - y_1 = m(x - x_1) ]

Substitute the given values into the formula:

[ y - (-4) = -7(x - 0) ]

Simplify:

[ y + 4 = -7x ]

This is the equation of the line in point-slope form.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
