Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well according to me the correct answer is 3x  4y = 22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes 3x4y=22 is the correct answer. this new equation doesn't make any sense. it doesn't give slope nor intercept. it gives nothing,so why you want to convert it in this form???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y = (3/4) x  5.5 Multiply each side by 4 4 y = 4*(3/4) x  5.5*4 Evaluate the terms on the right side 4 y = (3) x  22 Move (3)x to the left side (3) x + 4 y = (3) x + (3) x  22 On the right side, (3) x + (3) x cancel 3 x + 4 y = 22 Yes, polpak is mostly correct. The right side is 22. However, he said, "Should be 22 on the left there." I read polpak's comment at the time it was posted and ignored the entire comment content because of the left side error. Very sorry about all of this. I have put forth solutions on this site over 200 times and so far, this is the first time, that I know of, that I posted a solution with an error. I normally never attempt to solve problems posted on this site without the use of Mathematica to do the clerical work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Multiply both sides by 1 and you get 3x  4y = 22, as I wrote.... We normaiil eliminate the minus if it occurs on both sides of the equation as in this case

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, you are correct about the result of the minus 1 multiplication. I guess everything conceivable about this problem has been laid to rest. Have a good day.
