can anyone help me with slopes?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Sure

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yay! so i need help with standard form...i dont get it o.o how to turn y=mx+b into standard from

OpenStudy (anonymous):

y=mx+b is the standard form.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

no, that's the equation for a line, i mean to turn that, into Ax+By+C=0

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Oh, in that case you need to transpose terms by adding/subtracting them from both sides of the equation. Starting out with y=mx+b, first subtract mx from both sides, then subtract b from both sides. This will leave you with: y-mx-b = 0

OpenStudy (anonymous):

what about, for example, if the equation of the line was y=5x+2 what would be the standard form for that?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

and i heard something about multiplying of dividing it by -1to make the equation positive

OpenStudy (anonymous):

You would need to subtract 5x and 2 from both sides of the equation to get it into standard form.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

slope of a line is nothing but finding the tangent of that particular line at that point
