Write the equation in standard form of the line that passes through P (5, - 7) and has slope of -1 over 5. The equation is: Answer by stanbon(57407)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Write the equation in standard form of the line that passes through P(5,-7) and has slope of -1 over 5. --- Form: y = mx + b Substitute for y,m,and x; solve for "b": -7 = (-1/5)5 + b -7 = -1 + b b = -6 The equation is: y = (-1/5)x-6 ----------------- Cheers, Stan H.
