 Question 593992: This is the question that I am having difficulty with. Write the standard form of the equation from the line that passes through points (-6,-8) and (-4,-11). I have found the slope = -3/2 and I can get through the next step in slope intercept form y=-3/2x -17 but then I get stuck. HELP!!!Answer by Alan3354(31529)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Write the standard form of the equation from the line that passes through points (-6,-8) and (-4,-11). I have found the slope = -3/2 ----------- Use y = mx + b and either point to find b, the y-intercept --- -8 = (-3/2)*(-6) + b b = -17 ---- The eqn is y = (-3/2)x - 17 3x + 2y = -34 in standard form
