Write an equation of the line that passes through each point with the given slope.

(-3,-4) ,m=3

a. y=3x+13

b.y=3x-5

c.y=-3x+5

d.y=3x+5

??

The general equation for a sraight line is in the form

y=mx+b

where m is the slope and b is the y intercept. You are given m, Plug -3 in for x and -4 for y and 3 for m. Then calculate b. Knowing b will allow you to enter b in the general form of

y = mx + b and that should be one of the answers.
