**Reiny**, Monday, May 24, 2010 at 4:43pmYour question is typed in an ambiguous way

is it (y-1)/(x-0) = -3

why would any textbook write x-0 as a denominator?

I will take it at face value, the way you typed it.

y - 1/x - 0 = -3

y - 1/x = -3

multiply by x

xy - 1 = -3x

xy = 1 - 3x

y = (1-3x)/x
