    can you calculate the slope of the line passing through those two points? use: \(\Large slope=m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1} \)

    do you know how to use the slope formula?

    would the answer be y-15=-3(x+2)

    of course, the answer is not unique... you could've also used the other (9, -18).... :)

    What is the equation of the given line in standard form? Use integer coefficients. y = –1.7x + 8.5

    this is standard form: Ax + By = C, where A, B, C are integer coefficients... so in your slope-intercept form, we need to clear the decimals by multiplying by the whole equation by 10... \(\Large y = –1.7x + 8.5 \) \(\Large \color {red}{10}[y = –1.7x + 8.5] \) can you tell me what youd get here?

    17x + 10y = 85 ?
