Point-slope form: Slope-intercept form: Standard form: Step-by-step explanation:

The easiest form to use here if you know it is point-slope form.  I say this because you are given a point and the slope of the equation.

The point-slope form is .

Again you are given and . with the line before this one gives us:  This is point-slope form.

We can rearrange it for different form.

Another form is the slope-intercept form which is y=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

So to put into y=mx+b we will need to distribute and isolate y.

I will first distribute. 3/5(x-2)=3/4 x -6/5.

So now we have Subtract 4 on both sides: This is slope-intercept form.

We can also do standard form which is ax+by=c. Usually people want a,b, and c to be integers.

So first thing I will do is get rid of the fractions by multiplying both sides by 5.

This gives me  Now subtract 3x on both sides You could also multiply both sides by -1 giving you: 2.
