Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would put it in standard form by first multiplying both sides of the equation by 7 to get rid of the denominator in the first term: x/7 That would be \[(\frac{x}{7}4y)*7 = 2*7\] then distributing on the left you get \[\frac{x}{7}*74y*7 = 2*7\] which is \[\frac{x}{7}*\frac{7}{1}4y*7 = 2*7\] and the first term reduces to x since the 7's cancel so you get \[x28y=14\] Now isolate y on one side of the equation by putting all the terms without y on the other and dividing each term by 28

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x28y=14 \] x x \[\frac{28y}{28}=\frac{x}{28}\frac{14}{28}\] \[\frac{28y}{28}=\frac{x}{28}+\frac{14}{28}\] which simplifies to \[y=\frac{x}{28}+\frac{1}{2}\] c is \[\frac{1}{2}\] Does that help? :)
