What is the equation in standard form of the line which passes through (6, 3) and has a slope of ?
2x + 3y = 3
2x – 3y = 3
3x + 2y = 3
3x – 2y = 3

do you know what the standard form of a linear equation looks like?

y=mx+b m is the slope and b is the y intercept. so.. is your question incomplete or are u supposed to use the given equations to compute the slope?

Hint:
In Ax + By = C
the slope is A/B
In Ax  By = C
the slope is A/B

if you know the slope and the point it passes through you can use the point slope formula to figure out the equation of the line. yy1 = m(xx1)

so y  3 = 2/3(x  6)

can you solve from there and rearrange to the right form?

Hint:
start with
y  3 = 2/3(x  6)
and multiply everything (but the stuff in the parenthesis) by 3 to get
3y  9 = 2(x6)
