The equation of a line 2008-01-20
From Sara:
The question is:

Write the equation of a line that is parallel to y=3x-2 through the point (-5,9). I think the correct equation for this is y=3x+24. But I have to write it in standard form, and I can't seem to figure out how to do that. Please answer soon! Thanks!

y-intercept form 2007-03-16
From Ken:
Simple way on how to convert to & from y-intercept form & Std. form. Eg: Convert into y-intercept form: 3x+4y+7=0, Eg.: Convert into Std. Form: y=-1/2x +3, y=50x +300. I would appreciate your help in this matter, as I find it hard to understand. Kind Regards: Ken
