How do you write in standard form an equation of the line with the slope -4 through the given point (2,2)?
Answer & Explanation
First off you have to know the standard form formula which is:
Plug in the slope and the points (x,y) to get b
Next, you add 8 to both sides to get b alone:
Plug your slope and b value into the standard formula
the equation of a line in standard form is.
where A is a positive integer and B, C are integers
obtain the equation in point-slope form and rearrange into standard form
where m is the slope and a point on the line
here m=-4 and
in point-slope form
add 4x to both sides
add 2 to both sides
in standard form
