First you need to find the slope of the given equation. Do that by solving the equation for y to put the equation into slope-intercept form,
. Then the slope of the line will be the coefficient on the x-term (the
Once you have determined the slope, use the point-slope form of a line,
, with the x- and y-coordinates of the given point
) to create the desired equation.
Depending on how your instructor wants to see the answer, you may have to manipulate the derived equation into standard form
