    Alright.. I would be REALLY grateful if a fellow GBATemp member helped me on one Question. I'm in Algebra II but we had a Geometry/Algebra I Review sheet today... I'm really stuck on one question... Due to me dozing off during class... I will KISS your feet if you help me answer it. =P

    Write an equation of the line that passes through the point (2, -3) and has a slope of -1.

    ~This seems extremely simple, but I really have no idea how to do it... Damn my tiredness... Thanks for picking up my slack!

    y=mx+b

    where...

    m= slope
    b= y intercept

    sooo...

    y=-1x+(-1)


    ps. I got the -1 by doing this:


    Since it HAS TO pass through the point (2,-3) i simply plugged in those values into the equation:

    y=-1x+?
    into...

    -3=-1(2)+?

    and got -1 for the y intercept. Plugged it into the equation and there ya go!

    Is that Algebra II ?
    I read Analysis III now...
    like...
    calculate the double integral:

    Integral Integral lowered D for e^((y-x)/(y+z)) dxdy
    where D is the triangle with the corners in (0,0), (4,0) and (2,2).

    I hate it... exam is next Wednesday! :

    damn i hate algebra...
    especially intergration and differention
    the sad thin is that those subjects actually have a use in life

    why do they need to be soo damn complicated?

    Guys, what does integration have to do with algebra?[​IMG] Maybe it's the way the Canadian education system is, but Calculus is a completely different branch from Algebra. Algebra is like proving stuff, vectors and equations and rearranging them. Calculus is the one with functions, differentiation and integration.
