Use the short formula..
y - y1 = m(x-x1)
y - (-5) = -2/3 (x - 2)

Solve.

y+5 = 2/3x - 4/3

Correct.

Now bring that into standard form.

2/3 x - y = i am stuck

make y the subject first.

y = 2/3 x -4/3 - 5

y = -2/3 - 5

wrong.

not sure what answer is then

|dw:1343322191844:dw|Can you solve from here?

not sure sorry

What is it that you do not understand so i can help you out?

Lets start this over.
Basically you have got your slope and your b, so you are pretty much set up.

he said y = 2x/3 - 19/3 you cant substract that correct

so it would be 2x/3 - y = -19/3

y - y1 = m(x-x1)
y - (-5) = -2/3 (x - 2)
y+5=-2/3x + 4/3

okay i see that so far

then i understand the 2/3x - y = 4/3 - 5 after this is where i get confused

2/3x-y = 11/3

Yes. Only dont forget the (-) sign in front of the 2/3

okay thanks

np :)

in my problem it will not let me have / as an option

Okay, then you can get rid of the fractions by multiply each side by 3.

Giving you -2x-3y=11

thanks

Sure.
