Find an equation of the line having the given slope and containing the given point.
m=7/8, (5,6)
The equation of the line is y=?

The equation of a line passing through a point (x1,y1)=(5,6) with a slope m=7/8
is
L : (yy1)=m(xx1)
Substitute numeric values of x1,y1 and m into L to get the final equation.
