Thanks.Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi line that passing through (3, -5) with slope = -(3/7) Using the standard slope-intercept form for an equation of a line y = mx + b where m is the slope and b the y-intercept. y = (-3/7)x + b -5 = -3/7*3 + b |using ordered pair (3,-5) to solve for b -35/7 +9/7 = b -26/7 = b y = (-3/7)x -26/7 OR 3x+7y = -26 in standard form ```
