You try: Turn it into a y=mx + b format

Divide 3x+(-24)?
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Wait..

  • KatrinaKaif
when you bring 3x to the other side, you are substracting it.. therefore your final equation should be -8y = -3x - 24 correct?

  • KatrinaKaif
Now divide that by -8

Divede -3x-24 by -8?
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Yup so -3/-8 x and -24/-8
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Lol yeah :P -3/-8 becomes 3/8 and -24/-8 becomes + 3

Alright, so what do i do from there?
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Okay, so your equation is y = 3/8x + 3 and is in y= mx + b format Now m = slope so what is your slope?

  • anonymous
0.375?
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
or simply 3/8

  • anonymous
Oh alright haha and would the y-intercept be 3?
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Yes! Great work :D
