Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So let's see, we have: 3x = 2y + 9 Now, for pointslope form we'll plug in the point they give us, giving us: 3(x  (4)) = 2(y  7) + 9 3(x + 4) = 2(y  7) + 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then we can distribute the 3 and the 2: 3x + 3(4) = 2y  2(7) + 9 3x + 12 = 2y  14 + 9 Finally, we can combine like terms: 3x + 12 = 2y  5
