Given a point P(a,b) and slope m, the point slope equation is (y - b)/(x - a) = m

Write an equation in slope-intercept form for the line that passes through the given point and is parallel to the given line (-7,3); x=4

Slope Intercept form is meant for a line, so if you know the slope m in the equation y=mx+b then with a given point say (3,4) and say the slope of the line was 2 then the equation would read y=2x+4.

(0,-6) m=-2

If given simply the slope of a line and a point through which it passes, and then told to find the equation of the line, one of the easiest ways of doing so is to use the point-slope formula.
