## vivalakoda 3 years ago 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

1. Nameless

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

2. vivalakoda

No

3. Nameless

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?

4. vivalakoda

the slope is 2/3

5. jim_thompson5910

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

6. Nameless

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)

7. Nameless

so y - 3 = 2/3(x - 6)

8. Nameless

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

9. vivalakoda

I can't get the fraction part figured out

10. jim_thompson5910

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)

11. vivalakoda

I got 2x-3y=3.

12. jim_thompson5910

you are correct

13. vivalakoda

Awesome. Thanks muchos
