Homework Help: Math

Posted by Jon on Wednesday, April 22, 2009 at 12:38am.

Write the slope-intercept form of the equation of the line that passes through the point (-5,4) and has a slope of -1.

y = mx+b
4 = -1(-5)+b
4 = 5+b
9 = b

y = 5x+9

I don't see what I missed. Do I subtract 5 on both sides? that would be y = 5x-1
