Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First, change it to slopeintercept form: x2y=8 (subtract x from both sides) 2y=8x (divide both sides by 2) y=4+.5x (rearrange the right side) y=.5x4 Your .5 x, or 1/2, is your slope. It's rise over run. The 4 is your yintercept. So, go to the point (0,4). From there, go up one, over to the right two, up one, over to the right two. That's how you graph the equation. =)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok her we go Do as follows: 2x + 2y = 8 Notice that you have a common factor of 2, therefore divide everything by 2 2x/2 + 2y/2 = 8/2 Which then becomes: x + y = 4 Now substract x from both sides to isolate the y: x + y  x = 4  x x  x + y = 4  x; collecting like terms 0 + y = 4  x y = 4  x REMEMBER: That when you are trying to remove a term from one side do the opposite on BOTH sides. Here I eliminated the x by substracting x on both sides.
