#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in

#color(blue)"point-slope form"# is.

#color(red)(bar(ul(|color(white)(2/2)color(black)(y-y_1=m(x-x_1))color(white)(2/2)|)))#

where m represents the slope and# (x_1,y_1)" a point on the line"#

#"here " m=1/2" and " (x_1,y_1)=(7,-6)#

#y-(-6)=1/2(x-7)#

#rArry+6=1/2(x-7)larrcolor(red)" in point-slope form"#
