This week in math 10 we learned how to write and equation of a line in general form form. Bellow are some examples and descriptions of how to do general form.
- y = -2x + 9
So you have this equation and basically all you need to do is get a zero on one side of the equation by itself.
So subtract the y and you get 0 = 2x – y + 9
2. y – 4 = 7(x – 1)
y – 4 = 7x – 7 so you have to distribute first, now get zero on opposite of the equation
y = 7x + 4 – 7
0 = 7x -y – 3
