Step 1

Point –slope formula is a general formula to obtain the line of the equation, while the slope of the line and a point on the line is given.

Let m is the slope of the line and (x1,y1) is appoint on the line. Then,

Step 2

Given that, the slope of the line is 1/3 and the line passes through the point (-2,5). Therefore,

Step 3

Substitute the values of m, x1 and x2 in the poin...
