# How do you find a standard form equation for the line with slope 2/3 that passes through the point (3,6)?

##### 2 Answers

You may use the standard form of the straight line:

#### Explanation:

The statement gives that

Now, we also know that the line passes through

The standard form is

#### Explanation:

**Start by finding the slope-intercept form of the equation, then converting that to the standard form.**

The slope-intercept form is

The slope

**To find #b#, sub in the values for #x# and #y# from the ordered pair given in the problem.**

Solve for

1) Clear the parentheses by multiplying the fractions

2) Subtract

So the slope-intercept form of the equation is

**slope-intercept form**

**Change the slope-intercept form into standard form.**

Standard form is

1) Clear the fraction by multiplying all the terms on both sides by

2) Subtract

3) Multiply through by

**standard form**
