Write an equation of the line with the given slope and yintercept in standard form.
slope: 0.5; yintercept: 7.5
Is 0.5x + y = 7.5 correct or a start or anything?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=mx+b where m is slope If you get y by itself y=0.5x+7.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you but how do I make it standard form? Standard form is Ax + By = C but I can't remember what a and b are. I think A is the slope and B might be the y intercept?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not really sorry. I'm a little confused on standard form.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0standard form is Ax+By=C you are right on that. Hint:y=mx+b is wrong. where m is SLOPE

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In your example for slope intercept form, you have 0.5 for m.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They do not want 0.5 for m right? They want 0.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Problem says slope: 0.5 slope=m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't understand. I said 0.5x + y = 7.5 above, I think.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just don't understand how to convert slope intercept to standard. I can't remember it and I've looked at a few websites and it doesn't seem to show me how, just provide practice problems.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00.5x+y=7.5 turns to y=0.5x+7.5 if you make y by itself and y=mx+b where m is slope m=0.5 m=slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh okay I see. I didn't understand what you were going for there. Alright so what would I have to do now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright thank you! So I just need to start the proper way with slope intercept then convert to standard is all?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, slope intercept first then standard. It makes everything easier at the beginning.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think you guy missed the final step. For standard form, all the numbers have to be integers, and according to most sources, the coefficient of x must be positive. So you need to multiply by 2 to get rid of the decimals and make the "a" positive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By 2? Isn't it usually be 1 to keep the numbers the same? @Shalante ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the numbers were integers, yes you'd multiply by 1. But you have decimals. You need to multiply. If they were fractions they'd be dw:1439522812444:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But standard form is Ax+By=C If A turns positive then B turns negative it would be Ax+(By)=C which will be AxBy=C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's why you multiply by 2 to clear the common denominator of 2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0B can be negative in standard from. It will still be Ax + By = C, it's just that B takes on a negative value. And that's kind of why I said "most sources". I learned it as A has to be positive, but I've seen recently that some books don't make that a requirement

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but clearing the fraction/decimal is a must

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You said every integer would have to be positive in standard form, but I realized only A can be positive You are right that it cannot be in fraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Republican31 Hey, he is right. Multiply everything by 2 like this 2(0.5x+y)=7.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, and you don't need to keep the 1 in front of x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just wanted to make sure I was supposed to multiply the 7.5 too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah you multiply the 7.5, and the rules have been around since before online school so you should be good :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright thank you! By the way I finally found the rules they gave for these forms. SlopeIntercept Form y = mx + b m is the slope and b is the yintercept Standard Form Ax + By = C A ≥ 0 A and B are not both 0 A, B, and C are integers whose greatest common factor is 1 It is possible to change any linear equation from one form to the other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Of course you can change linear equation form. From point slope form to standard form and vice versa.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Linear equation form? I think the only other that's been covered yet is point slope form, unless that's similar.
