# Math Help - Express slope-intercept form in general form

1. ## Express slope-intercept form in general form

Hey guys,

the task: Express y=5/3x+2 in general form.

5x -3y +6 = 0

Is that correct?

2. ## Re: Express slope-intercept form in general form

Hey ford2008.

Is general form in ax + by + cz + dw + ... + = 0 or n . (r - r0) = 0? (n is normal vector, r is any point on line/plane and r0 is a specific point on line/plane)?

3. ## Re: Express slope-intercept form in general form

Hey chiro,

general form is Ax + By + C = 0 (where A, B and C are integers)

4. ## Re: Express slope-intercept form in general form

It you are to express it in that form, then you should write:

5x + (-3)y + 6 = 0

I think you're being just a little anal Mark.

6. ## Re: Express slope-intercept form in general form

Perhaps, but after all, the OP wasn't asked to use the form $Ax-By+C=0$
