Hi, I'm new here! I'm having an issue with this problem in my homework. I need to find the equation of each line and put it in standard form.

The points I have are (-7, -4) and (0,6).

So I used the y2-y1 method.

. Then I found b.(6-4)

-----

(0-(-7) and got 10/7. So y= 10/7x + b

so in slope-intercept form my answer is

-4 = 10/7(-7) + b

-4 = 10 + b

-6 = by= 10/7x - 6.

But i need it in standard form and the tutorials I've found for this say you just need to minus mx from both sides. So I did and I got. However my book says the answer should be-10/7x +y = -62x + 7y = -42.

I think I'm not understanding how to convert slope-intercept form to standard form. The other problems in my homework have the same issue.

By the way, I hope I put this in the correct format- sorry if I didn't! Thank you...
