Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh no it is not did you get the slope?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. The slope is 2/3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know I use this formula. Y=mx+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok then use the point slope formula pick a point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no dear we are not going to use that, we are going to so something else pick a point from the two you have

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok now write \[yy_1=m(xx_1)\] with \[x_1=2,y_1=5,m=\frac{3}{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oops i meant \(m=\frac{2}{3}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you should be looking at \[y5=\frac{2}{3}(x2)\] right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i already did that and got y=(2/3)x+(11/3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now if you were going to write this in "point slope" form you would solve for \(y\) but you want "standard form" \[ax+by=c\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yeah but you went too far you got it in slope intercept form you were asked for standard form

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2lets start here \[y5=\frac{2}{3}(x2)\] it i easier

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2multiply both sides by \(3\) to get \[3y15=2(x2)\]

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2notice of course you have to multiply both sides by 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then distribute \[3y15=2x4\]

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2put all the variables on one side, numbers on the other get \[3y2x=11\] or \[2x3y=11\] that is "standard form"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're right! Gosh, I thought I didn't take it far enough but I went way too far. Thank you again, Misty!
