 Question 410604: find an equation of the line having the given slope and containing the given point. m=5/6, (5,-9). The equation of the line is y=??Answer by ewatrrr(11176)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi line having the given slope and containing the given point. m=5/6, (5,-9). y = (5/6)x + b |using ordered pair Pt(5,-9) to solve for b -9 = 25/6 + b -54/6 - 25/6 = b -79/6 = b y = (5/6)x -79/6 ```
