10. Write an equation in point-slope form for the line through the given point with the given slope.

(5, 2); m = 3

A. y + 2 = 3 (x - 5)

B. y + 2 = 3x - 5

C. y - 2 = 3(x + 5)

D. y - 2 = 3(x - 5)***

Write an equation in point-slope form for the line through the given point with the given slope.

(-3, -5); m = -2/5

A. y + 5 = -2/5 (x + 3)

B. y + 5 = (-2/5)x - 3***

C. y - 5 = -2/5 (x + 3)

D. y - 5 = -2/5 (x - 3)

First one is correct, but you missed the second one.

Why did you not follow the same steps you used in #1 ?

i did but i must have missed a step, is it D?

Nope - it's A

Note the minus signs in the point.
