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

sarver1995Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so it would be 2x/3  y = 19/3

y  y1 = m(xx1) 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

From there, you must but it into standard form, having all the x's and y's on one side. Subtract y, and then subtract 4/3. Giving you 11/3=2/3xy
