Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To find the inverse, take y and x and interchange them and then solve for y. So the equation becomes x = 1/2y+2.3 Solve for y. x2.3 = 1/2y x  2.3*(2) = y y = 2(x 2.3) y = 2x  4.6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I read your question wrong! You need to find the y intercept and then make that your new equation's x intercept.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My answers aren't posting for some reason. You have this equation in the slopeintercept form already. The slope is 1/2. The slope of every parallel line is 1/2.
