The standard form Ax+By=C 2008-09-26
From Susan:
I am having difficulty changing the point-slope form of the equation of the line y-y1=m(x-x1) to the standard form Ax+By=C. You must express A,B,C in terms of the constants m,x1,y1. I have been able to insert numbers and switch easily from the general to the point slope equation, but I am stumped on how to convert it this way.
