Answer

$3x-7y=1$

Work Step by Step

Using $y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$ or the Point-Slope Form, the equation of the line with the given point $( 5,2 )$ and slope $m= \dfrac{3}{7} $ is \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} y-2=\dfrac{3}{7}(x-5) \\\\ 7(y-2)=3(x-5) \\\\ 7y-14=3x-15 \\\\ -3x+7y=-15+14 \\\\ -3x+7y=-1 \\\\ 3x-7y=1 .\end{array}
