Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know of a form of equations where you can easily get the slope?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if we can solve the above equation for y, then we might be closer to getting the slope and yintercept, right? Can you solve the equation for y?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well I do know that you take 7 and subtract that from both sides geting 1/2y=2x7 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Exactly, that's the first step.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay then after that im confused

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well 2 would be the slope right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So then you need to get the y alone. That means you have to get rid of the 1/2 that's next to it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so 1/2+ 7 = 3.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Close. Because y is multiplied by the 1/2, we have to divide both sides by 1/2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Dividing by 1/2 is the same as multiplying by 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh thats where i always mess up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So we would have: 2(1/2y) = 2(2x  7)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now what's the slope?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0YAY haha the slope would be 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right! And the yintercept?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, so now let's look at your other question and see if we can apply the same idea.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, hehe, I was going to actually go to that problem, so we keep things organized :)
