# How do you find the equation of the line with slope m=7/8 and point (1,-2)?

substitute these values into the equation.

If we distribute and simplify we obtain an alternative form of the equation.

To find the equation of the line with slope ( m = \frac{7}{8} ) and passing through the point ( (1, -2) ), you can use the point-slope form of a linear equation:

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

Substitute the given values ( m = \frac{7}{8} ), ( x_1 = 1 ), and ( y_1 = -2 ) into the equation:

[ y - (-2) = \frac{7}{8}(x - 1) ]

Simplify:

[ y + 2 = \frac{7}{8}(x - 1) ]

[ y + 2 = \frac{7}{8}x - \frac{7}{8} ]

[ y = \frac{7}{8}x - \frac{7}{8} - 2 ]

[ y = \frac{7}{8}x - \frac{7}{8} - \frac{16}{8} ]

[ y = \frac{7}{8}x - \frac{23}{8} ]

So, the equation of the line is ( y = \frac{7}{8}x - \frac{23}{8} ).

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.
