    Express general form in point-slope form.

    Hey guys,

    the task: Express 5x -y -7=0 in point-slope form.

    My answer:

    y+7 = 5(x-0)
    y+7 = 5x

    Is that correct?

    Re: Express general form in point-slope form.

    I would write it as:

    y - (-7) = 5(x - 0)

    This clearly shows the point (0,-7) and the slope 5.
