# Input the equation of the given line in standard form.

The line with m = 2/3 and passing through (1, 1).

Hi again Lindsey;
SEE BELOW...!!!!!!!!!!!
Standard form equation is...
Ax+By=C, neither A nor B equal zero, and A is greater than zero.
Slope of a standard equation is -A/B.
Slope is (2/3).
The negative of slope is -2/3.
-2x+3y=C
To establish the value of C, we will input the point provided, (1,1)...
[(-2)(1)]+[(3)(1)]=C
-2+3=C
1=C
-2x+3y=1
Steve reminded me of the fact that A must be greater than zero.  Therefore, both sides must be multiplied by -1...
2x-3y=-1

"A is greater than zero."
Hi Lindsay,
Steve is correct.  I made a mistake.  In my equation, A is greater than zero,  -2x+3y=1.  Both sides must be multiplied by -1---2x-3y=-1.
MY APOLOGIES.
Find standard form equation of a line with m = 2/3 and passing through (1, 1).

y - 1 = (2/3) (x - 1)

Multiply both sides by 3:

3y -3 = 2x -2
-3y+2=-3y+2

-1 = 2x - 3y

Swapping sides:

2x - 3y = -1

Especially if calculus is in your future, learn this technique very well.
