Answer by tutorcecilia(2152)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Determine the equation of the line through (-4,7) with a slope of -2. Write the answer in standard form using only integers as the coefficients. Use the point-slope formula: (y-y1)=m(x-x1) [Plug-in the points] (y-7) = (-2)(x-(-4))[Simplify] y-7=-2(x+4) y-7=-2x - 8 [Move the variables to one side of the equation] y = -2x - 1 2x + y = - 1 [Standard form]
