# How do you write the equation in standard form given m=3 (0,6)?

May 28, 2016

The equation is $y = 3 x + 6$.

#### Explanation:

The standard form is

$y = m x + q$

you already have $m$ but you do not have $q$.
On the other hand you have $x$ that is 0 and $y$ that is 6, so we try to substitute the values that we have in the standard form and see what happen

$6 = 3 \cdot 0 + q$

that leaves us with

$6 = q$.

So now we have also $q$ and we can write our equation:

$y = 3 x + 6$.
