A line passes through the points (-3, -5) and (6,1). The equation of this line can be expressed in the form Ax+By = C, where , A , B and C are integers with greatest common divisor 1 and A is positive. Find Find A+B+C.

From (-3, -5) to (6, 1), the line goes 9 right, and 6 up.

Then the the equation must be y=6/9x-3

9y=6x-27

9y-6x=-27

Yeah umm. It's not very possible with a GCD of 1.

9-6-27=-24

Yay!

Slope =   (-5-1) / (-3-6) = -6/-9   = 6/9    ( as varxaax found)

Point slope form    becomes     (y-1) =2/3 (x-6)

y = 2/3x -3

3y -2x = -9

LOL!!!

The problem is  that my "Saturday"  math largely  resembles  my "Other Days of the Week"  math.....
