    Answer:

      A.  y + 1 = -2(x – 5)

    Step-by-step explanation:

    For a line with slope m through point (h, k), the equation is …

      y -k = m(x -h)

    Fill in your values of m=-2, h=5, k=-1 and you have …

      y -(-1) = -2(x -5)

      y +1 = -2(x -5) . . . . . . simplify. Matches selection A.
