Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. When writing linear equations, how do you determine which form of a line to use? 2. Write an equation in pointslope form for the line that passes through the pair of points Then, use the same set of points to write the equation in standard form and again in slopeintercept form. (5, 1), (–3, 4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You write an equation of a line, you want to use slope intercept form because this shows the slope and yintercept clearly. I can't remember what form Ax+By=C is called, I think standard form, yoou should look that up. I never use it unless another equation is setup the same way and I want to use the elimination method to solve for the unknowns

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Number 2: First find the slope between the two points. then use just one point and the slope in the point slope form yy1=m(xx1) to solve for the other two forms
