Write the equation of the line that passes through point (2, –6) with a slope of –5.

I think this is a pretty easy problem, but I'm making it out to be harder than it really is. here is what I got:

y=mx+b

-6=-5(2)+b

-6=-10+b

=10 =10

b=4

the equation that I got is:

y=-5x+4

is this right?

yes, and that is how easy these questions are

BTW from:

-6=-10+b

=10 =10

b=4

the second line should be

-6+10 = b

your line =10 =10 makes no sense

It should have been +10 +10...adding 10 to both sides. oops, thanks for your help though! :)
