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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2y  y1 = m(xx1) y  (5) = 2/3 (x  2) y+5=2/3x + 4/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then i understand the 2/3x  y = 4/3  5 after this is where i get confused

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2From 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
