Answer

$y+7=4/5(x+2)$

Work Step by Step

Recall, the equation for point slope form is the following: $y- y_{1}=m(x - x_{1})$, where $(x_{1} , y_{1})$ is a point on the line and m is the slope of the line. Thus, we plug -2 in for $x_{1}$, -7 in for $y_{1}$, and 4/5 in for m to obtain the answer: $y+7=4/5(x+2)$
