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. y-y1 = m(x-x1)

    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(x-6)

    I got 2x-3y=3.
