    Unhappy coordinate geometry help ( equations of a line)

    I've been stuck on this one assignment for months on my online class and need major help. here are some example problems it would be really awesome if someone could help me PLEASE and thank youuuuuuuuuuuu


    "indicate the equation given in standard form"
    1) A (2,2) B (-2,-2) C(1,-1)

    7)Indicate the equation of the given line in standard form.
    The line with slope and containing the midpoint of the segment whose endpoints are (2, -3) and (-6, 5)

    We don't know what "you know"; so hard to help...

    The above 2 problems make no sense...
    1) why 3 points?
    7) slope = ?

    Do you know what "standard form" means?
    Did you do any work, like using google? :

    nevermind the first thing in quotes i was just trying to copy the explanation.
    I really don't know how to do any of this and yeah I know that standard form is ax+by=c or something like that

    You should understand that this is not a homework service nor is it a tutorial service. Please either post some of your own work on this problem or explain what you do not understand about the question.
