Finding the equation's slope-intercept form first, then changing it to standard form, is the first step. The slope-intercept form is
The slope is given as , so the equation up to that point is Substitute the values for and from the ordered pair provided in the problem to determine
Solve for 1) Clear the parentheses by multiplying the fractions
2) Subtract from both sides to isolate
So the slope-intercept form of the equation is slope-intercept form The slope-intercept form should be changed to standard form. Standard form is where is a positive whole digit 1) Clear the fraction by multiplying all the terms on both sides by and letting the denominator cancel
2) Subtract from both sides to get the and terms on the same side
3) Multiply through by to clear the minus sign standard form
