Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so your original equation first becomes x3 = 1/2y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I appreciate it very much. I just do not see where you multiply both sides by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no problem. and from that new equation, you should be able to see the slope fairly easily. if not, look through your notes/textbook.
