# How do you write the equation in point slope form given Point: (1, 9); Slope: 5?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

To begin, you're going to want to find your

#y=5x+b#

#9 = 5 * 1 +b#

#9 = 5 + b#

#9 - 5 = b implies b = 4# (your#y# -intercept)

Now, since you already have your slope

#y = 5x + 4#
