what does the slope intercept form look like?

y = mx + b

very good; now what do you think should do first to get this to look like that?

move one of those numbers to become the y ?
amistre64
  • amistre64
yes... lets "move" the -3x over by adding +3x to each side: 2y = 3x+8 now what can we do?
anonymous
  • anonymous
isolate the y ?
amistre64
  • amistre64
yes.. we can do that by "dividing" both sides by 2 right? will that help us?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes so . 2y = 3x + 8 y = 3x + 4 ?
amistre64
  • amistre64
very close.... I see you divided 8 by 2 = 3; but we also need to divide 3x by 2...the number gets us a fraction. y = (3/2)x + 4 do you see that?
amistre64
  • amistre64
ack!! 8/2 = 4 not 3 lol

  • anonymous
Lol ! so am i getting closer ?

  • amistre64
you are :) does y = (3/2)x + 4 look like: y = mx + b?
anonymous
  • anonymous
why , yes . yes it does !
amistre64
  • amistre64
then we are done :)
