what does it mean "in standard form"? these are two coordinates

3. anonymous

i have to get them 2 point in a standard form as in Ax+Bx=C

4. anonymous

you mean you need the equation of the line through the two points yes?

5. anonymous

i guess i really dont no

6. anonymous

slope is \{\frac{-5}{3}\] because from 5 to 8 is three units to the right and from 3 to -2 is 5 units down. $m=\frac{-2-3}{8-5}=\frac{-5}{3}$

7. anonymous

maybe you need an equation f(x)=mx+b

8. anonymous

now use point -slope formula $y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$ $y-3=\frac{5}{3}(x-5)$

9. anonymous

now multiply by 3 to get $3y-9=-5(x-5)$ $3y-9=-5x+25$ $5x+3y=25$
