 Question 433096: A line passes through these points: (0, -7) and (-1,0). Please, could you help me write an equation for this line in slope-intercept form and show me how, step-by-step? Thank you :)Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi I. Using the point-slope formula, (0, -7) and (-1 ,0) m = -7/1 II. 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 = -7x + b |using ordered pair(-1,0) to find b 0 = -7*-1 + b -7 = b y = -7x - 7 ```
