Homework Help: College Alegebra

Posted by Rick on Tuesday, August 24, 2010 at 10:26pm.

The line through (1, 3) with slope of 1/2 (I used the point slope equation)

y-y1 = m(x-x1) y-3 = 1/2(x-1)
(work the parenthesis first)
+3 +3
Y = 1/2x+5/2 LCD of 2 to convert fractions into whole numbers.
2y = x+5 Answer, however I need to place it in standard form where x and y are on the same side.

2y = x+5
-x -x
-x+2y=5 This should be the correct and final answer
Choices below are from the textbook, but none of the answers I come up with match any of the choices. What did I do wrong, and would you show me the steps as I have to show my work, and I can see where I made my mistake? Thanks

x+4y =13
x-2y = 5
y = 8x-5
y = 2x+1
y = 3
