Hi,Thank you for using the site. I'll be happy to help you with this.The point-slope equation has the form:y - y0 = m(x - x0)where (x0, y0) is the given point and m is the given slope.So, with (x0, y0) = (10, -2) and m = 3/5, the equation would be:y - (-2) = (3/5)(x - 10)And after simplifying the left side, the equation is:y + 2 = (3/5)(x - 10)Please feel free to ask if you have any questions about this solution.Thanks,Ryan
