equation describing the same lineCan anyone help me with this problem? #2 20130516 01:38:28
Re: equation describing the same lineHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130516 02:32:19
Re: equation describing the same lineOk, can you explain why so I understand? #4 20130516 02:38:01
Re: equation describing the same lineSubtract 3x from both sides. Subtract 4y from both sides. Put the 0 on the other side. Which matches the second one. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: equation describing the same lineI worked it out again and got it. Thanks so much #6 20130516 03:07:47
Re: equation describing the same lineGood that you worked it out yourself. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
