Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Slope intercept form means an equation in the form y=mx + b. so, you need to rearrange the equation to be in this form. Do you know how to start that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is the same principle. You can still subtract the same number from both sides. So, you can subtract 12 from both sides > 3y+2x=12
