User: Given two points on the line, input the equation of the line in standard form Ax + By = C. Reduce all fractional answers to lowest terms. (7, -3), (4, -8)

Weegy: The equation of the line in standard form Ax + By = C is 40 Solution: firstly, [ you know that the slope of a line is: m= y/ x So your change in y would be: 5-0=5 Your change in x would be 1-(-8)=9 So your slope is: ?y/?x=5/9 Then you need to use point slope form: y?y0=m(x x0) Either point will work. y?5=5/9(x?1)?y?5=5x/9 5/9 Adding 5 to the right gives you: y=5x9+409 Then you want to put the x on the left side giving: ?5x/9+y=40/9 ?5x+9y=40 ]

The slope of the line whose equation is 5x - 3y = 4 is
Weegy: The slope is 5/3. y = mx + b. So 5x - 3y = 4 ; -3y= -5x+4; y=(5/3)x -(4/3) Hence slope m =(5/3). (More)
