# What is the equation of the line with slope # m= 14/25 # that passes through # (23/5, (-23)/10) #?

##### 1 Answer

This is a somewhat unrealistic question, and becomes an exercise in arithmetic rather than maths.

#### Explanation:

There are 2 methods:

**Method 1** . uses the formula

This is great to use if you know the slope (m) and one point, which is exactly what we have here. It involves one step of substitution and a bit of simplifying.

**Method 2** uses

Subst for

This leads to the same equation, using values for m and c.
