to start, solve the equation for y.

  • anonymous
I have y=5x-4/2

x can be dependant on y :)

that is wrong. just do the basic algebra to get everything from the right side to the left until y is the only thing left on the right side.

y = -2x - 3/2.....maybe
anonymous
  • anonymous
No matter what way I do it, I still end up getting the same thing
anonymous
  • anonymous
so your original equation first becomes x-3 = -1/2y
anonymous
  • anonymous
then you multiply both sides by -2
anonymous
  • anonymous
so you get y=-2x+6
anonymous
  • anonymous
I appreciate it very much. I just do not see where you multiply both sides by -2
anonymous
  • anonymous
I am just confused.
anonymous
  • anonymous
well you're trying to get rid of the -1/2 on the right side. to do this, you can multiply by -2. but remember that what you do to one side, you have to do to the other.

OKay, now that I understand. Thank you so much.

  • anonymous
no problem. and from that new equation, you should be able to see the slope fairly easily. if not, look through your notes/textbook.
