Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.07=1/2y I have moved the 7 over to the other side of the = and made it positive, but what do I do next?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmm. what was the original problem asking you to do or find?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the slope and the y intercept of the line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What information were you given?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmm.. ok. That's really weird. They want you to find the slope and yintercept given that the line satisfies 7 = (1/2) y?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it 7 = (1/2) * y or 7 = 1/(2y)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.07=1/2y that is all it gives. no ()

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is the y in the numerator or denominator?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is a fraction with y beside the line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So that means that y is being multiplied by (1/2), onehalf

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, that's the same as y being in the numerator, or the top, of the fraction, but it's different than y being in the bottom of the fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK, so how do I clear the fraction or do I?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Anyways, we want to solve for y by itself to get the equation of the line in “pointslope form” Solving for y by itself, we see that y = 14, after multiplying both sides by 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why by 2 what happened to the fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So suppose I said, I have some money in my bank account, and if I gave you half of that, you would have 10 dollars. So how much do I have right now?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I didn't give you the money yet.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if I said I have money in my account. If I gave you half, you would have 1000. So how much money do I have?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You just solved "(1/2)* y = 1000"

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To solve (1/2)*y = 7 for y, it's the same idea

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if I have +7 and divide by 2?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, when we solved for y, what did you do to the 1000? You multiplied by 2.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if (1/2) * y = 7, then to solve for y, we should multiply 7 by 2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I moved the 7 to the other side of the = sign don't that make it +

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, when we multiply 7 by 2, we get 14. So multiplying 7 by 2 gives us 14.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, that's only if you're adding the 7 to the other side.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought that is what I had to do to get y=mx + B

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, I can see why you're confused.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If A = B, then B = A.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if 7 = (1/2) * y, then (1/2) * y = 7.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We didn't "move 7 to the other side of the equation" by adding it, we just rewrote the equation with the y on the left side and the 7 on the right.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought when you moved it to the other side of the = you had to add or subtract it?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have to go soon. It looks like you need extra help. I don't think this site is good for you if you need more help oneonone tutoring.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But does it make sense to you that if A = B then B = A?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What about if A = 7, then 7 = A?
