Ellie202000 one year ago Y+3=5/2(x+13) I have no idea what I am doing wrong. I keep getting y=5/2x+11 but that's not right.

1. SolomonZelman

$$\displaystyle y+3=\frac{5}{2}(x+13)$$ like this?

2. Ellie202000

yes

3. SolomonZelman

Above is the *point slope* form of the equation, and you (as I see) would like to convert this to a *slope intercept* form.

4. SolomonZelman

$$\displaystyle y+3=\frac{5}{2}(x+13)$$ $$(1)$$ First, you have to expand the right side. (Knowing that: *a*(b+c)= *a*b + *a*c) $$(2)$$ Then, subtract 3 from both sides. (And there will be your answer)

So what step am I missing? $y+3=\frac{ 5 }{ 2 }(x+13)$ $y+3-3=\frac{ 5 }{ 2 }x+14-3$ $y=\frac{ 5 }{ 2 }x-11$

The answer is $y=\frac{ 5}{ 2 }x+\frac{ 59 }{ 2 }$
