    do you mean that you need help graphing the equation? if so, here's how to do it the first thing to remember is that this is general linear form, which means ax+by=c. in this case it is x-3y=6. to graph it, you first divide c by a: 6/1=6. since you divided by the x value, this is the X INTERCEPT:(6,0). next you divide c by b; 6/-3=-2. this is the Y INTERCEPT: (0,-2). to graph it, draw a line that connects the two points we just found.

    Well, the question asks, what is y - 4 = (1/2) (x-2) in general linear form.

    Which variable would associate to the terms of the equation?

    it is usually like Ax + By + C = 0 sometimes Ax+By=D

    So move the variables to the left and the numbers on the right?

    A general linear form in variables x and y is the equation Ax + By = C. The general form for variables\[x_1, x_2,...,x_n\]is\[\sum_{i=1}^{n}A_ix_i = B.\]

    I appreciate the help, abtrhearn, but it's not what I'm looking for. Thank you. Thanks a bunch, Zarkon.
