    Answer:

    y + 5 = – 2(x – 1)

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The equation of a line in point- slope form is

    y – b = m(x – a)

    where m is the slope and (a, b) a point on the line

    Here m = – 2 and (a, b) = (1, – 5), thus

    y – (- 5) = – 2(x – 1), that is

    y + 5 = – 2(x – 1)
