ill give a medal write an equation in point-slope form for the line through the given point with the given slope (-3,-5);m=-2/5 A.y+5=-2/5(x+3) B.y+5=(-2/5)x-3 C.y-5=-2/5(x+3) D.y-5=-2/5(x-3)

point slope form (y-y1) = m(x - x1) m is the slope (x,y) and (x1, y1) are any 2 points on the line

yes thankyou but i was trying to kind of understand the answers like how do i get my work yo match the answer? do you get me?
