# Chapter 5 - Linear Functions - 5-4 Point-Slope Form - Practice and Problem-Solving Exercises - Page 318: 9

$y-2=-5/3(x-4)$

#### 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 4 in for $x_{1}$, 2 in for $y_{1}$, and -5/3 in for m to obtain the answer: $y-2=-5/3(x-4)$
