How can I convert y + 4 = (x-1) written standard form? I'm struggling with this partly because it doesn't seem to be in slope-intercept or point-slope form, because there is no slope/m value. I have no idea how to convert this. I have four choices for an answer and I've narrowed it down to two: -2x + y = -5 or -2x + y = -6 ^because they are the only choices in standard form. Can someone please help me convert this?

y+4=x-1 first write with x and y on the same side and all constant values on opposing side

not sure how you narrowed it down to a -2 in front of the x

unless y+4=(x-1) isn't what you meant to type

I might have misunderstood it - the other options are y = 2x - 6 and y = 2x - 5. In class it was emphasized that it has to be in the Ax + By = C form, which the other two options didn't look to be

I'm struggling to isolate the variables from the constants, and don't understand how many of the choices arrived at 2x anywhere in the equation.

so the equation really is y+4=(x-1) ?

yes, it is

have you drop the ( ) because you don't need them y+4=x-1 since there is nothing acting upon them subtract y on both sides and add 1 to both sides and your equation will be in standard form
