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)
