Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I dont understand, cause it written then we have to follow the formula but it doesnt come out 6\[6_{0}+3y=0\] x y 0 6 I'm just confused as to what formula to use so I can have coordinates to point on the graph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As melor said, write the equation in the form y=mx+c. m then will be the slope. To do so, first move 6x to the other side, you get: \[3y=6x\] Now, divide both sides by 3, you will have:\[{3y \over 3}={6x \over 3} \implies y=2x\] So the equation is y=2x+0. What is the slope?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know. I just rearranged the equation to the form y=2x. The slope is now the coefficient of x, which is 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.06x+3y=0, bring 6x to the right hand side, 3y=6x, divide all by 3, y=2x. compare what you have with the general form y=mx+c, m=2, y=0 since there is no terms after x :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry, not y=0, it's c=0 :) which c is the yintercept.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you should be familiar with the general form of a straight line, it helps you alot in searching for gradient or yintercept :)
