First get the slope= $\frac{-5+4}{2+6}$ = $-\frac{1}{8}$

Equation in point slope form can be written using either of the given points.

Using (-6,-4), it would be y +4 = $-\frac{1}{8}$ (x+6)

Using (2,-5) it would be y+5= $-\frac{1}{8}$(x-2)

(Both the equations are essentially same)

The slope of a linear equation of the form

I've read that this is because the coefficient of x (coefficient of y) represent the "speed" at which x (y) increases and thus we can get the slope by dividing the "speed of x" by the "speed of y" - but I'm afraid it's not very intuitive to me.

Why do we use this formula and how is this equivalent to the more general slope formula,

Transform each equation into standard form:

$a.y=2x\u20138$

$b.y=-\frac{4}{7}x+2$

$c.y-2=-5(x+1)$

$d.y+4=\frac{2}{5}(x+3)$
