Answer

$y=-3x+1$

Work Step by Step

We are told to find the equation of the line that satisfies the following conditions: Passes through the point $(-1,4)$, and has a slope of -3, To find the equation of the line we use point slope form: $y - y_1 = m(x-x_1)$ $x_1 = -1$ $y_1 = 4$ $m=-3$ $y - 4 = 6(x - (-1))$ $y = -3x -3 +4$ $y =-3x +1$
