# How do I find the General form Ax+By=C of an equation using a given slope and a given point?

given slope = 4/7
containing (0,5)

I google this and all I get is how to go from standard to general or how to find the general using 2 points, not a slope AND a point.

I think I get it, but I'm not 100% sure on how to explain this Dx

And this is only the easy stuff :/

You know the ratio of x to y so if you know one you can find the other, right? Go from there.

Y = 4/7x + 5 should be the slope form (I think), as 5 is the Y-intercept in that point. For converting slope-form and standard-form I use this a lot. http://www.algebra.com/algebra/homework/Linear-equations/converting-linear-equations.solver

xD Don't! I'm reeeeally bad at math. I just happen to be doing the same stuff, and that's one of the few things I can recall.
