Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay so do you know what the x and y intercepts are? Can you find the x and y values you are looking for?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what is the slope between those lines

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So it line would include (2, 0) and (0, 5) . Does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you know how to find the slope?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what would the equation be in standard form?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0xintecept of 2 (i.e. the point (2,0)) and a yintercept of 3 (i.e. the point (0,3)) lie on the line... so repeat the procedure from the previous problem and your golden :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=mx+b is slope intercept and point slope is the y2y1=m(x2x1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember that A has to be a positive and a whole number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait so what is the equation in standard form?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I've always thought point slope form looked so ugly.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea honestly its only a cheat formula to remember the slope formula

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1get your x value and y value on the same side and you've got standard form.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what would it look like? Can you show me?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1an example (but not your answer): 5x+29y = 39

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1See the x and y are on the same side, constant is on the other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it would be 2x+5y=5/2 ?

unimatix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Nope. Your math is off.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So how I'd solve it is: y = mx + b M = slope. Then plug in your x and y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What did you get for you slope?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y = 5x/2 + 5 is slopeintercept form right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what would it be in standard form?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So try adding the 5x/2 to each side from slope int.

unimatix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ah yes. That looks right!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You're welcome. Oh and if you ever want to check you can always plug in your values!
