need to find an equation. m=2/3, (5,2)
I got y(2)=(2/3)(x5) and then y+2=2/3x+2 what next?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0shouldn't it be y+2=2x/310/3 not y+2=2x/3+2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know for sure that is why I am asking.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok well when you multiplied it out it was supposed to be what I just gave you. And your next step would then be to subtract 2...6/3 from both sides. That is if your answer should be in y=mx+b format.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what i just put on here except they are telling is to subtract 1 from each side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it's telling you to subtract 1 from both sides as the next step?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya and that is why I figured I would ask

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure I understand the question because I would have approached it differently to begin with. I would have taken y=mx+b and plugged in your m value of 2/3 and then your point (5, 2) to get 2=2/3(5)+b. Then I would solve for b and get 16/3. Then the equation for the line would be y=(2/3)x16/3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0From the info I gave I am suppose to come up with an equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the info you gave being a slope of 2/3 and you're finding the equation of the line passing through the point (5,2), right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya in the format of y=mx+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well I got the answer y=(2/3)x16/3 with that given information

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and i haven't a clue why the book would tell you to subtract 1 from each side. Are you looking at an example? Where did you get the subtract 1 thing from?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just realized how late it is. I have to go to a 6:00 class and I have to leave now to get there on time. I'm really sorry, but I have to go!
