    O.K then we know that the line for which we are to develop the standard form equation is parallel so it too will have an equal slope of 3/4

    You can use the equation for slope. m=(y-y1)/(x-x1). plug in 3/4 for m. 3/4=(y-(-1))/(x-2) that works out to be: 3x-6=4y+4 placing in standard form: 3x-4y-10=0

    do you think you could also help me with this one? Indicate in standard form the equation of the line passing through the given points. G(4, 6), H(1, 5)

    Yes, you can use the same formula: m=(y1-y2)/(x1-x2) this time m is unknown but the two points are known. Thus m=(6-5)/(4-1)=1/3 Now use the formula with the new found value of m and use just one point I would use G. 1/3=(y-6)/(x-4) this becomes: x-4=3y-18 placing in standard form x-3y+14=0
