## mathsux4real 3 years ago INPUT GREATLY APPRECIATED! Without graphing the following equations, determine which one has the greater slope. Also, explain the process by which you came to your conclusion: a. 2y=5x-3 b. 5y=11x+3

1. m_charron2

you need to put both equation in the form y = mx+b. since you have a coefficient on the y, simply divide both sides by it, and you'll get "m"

2. m_charron2

what did you get?

alright lets see what we hve

4. mathsux4real

I'm not really trying to solve I'm just figuring out which one would have the greater slope w/o graphing or anything.

5. aminah.love18

oohhhh ok hold on okay

6. aminah.love18

alright for A=5/2

7. aminah.love18

and for B=11/5

8. aminah.love18

those are the two slopes there

9. mathsux4real

Thanks! So basically you determined by solving?

10. aminah.love18

yep

11. mathsux4real

So can you please explain how exactly you solved?

12. aminah.love18

hehehe its a secret

13. mathsux4real

:(

use this website and i promise you youll get the right answer every time

16. mathsux4real

lol Thanks aminah!

17. aminah.love18

kk oh i have one question for you

18. mathsux4real

19. aminah.love18

is that ur real pic

20. mathsux4real

Yes. Yes, it is.

21. aminah.love18

hmmmm hahahha ok :)

22. mathsux4real

? Why the laugh

23. aminah.love18

dont take this in a flirtatious sort of way but you are really cute

24. mathsux4real

Haha why thank you.

25. aminah.love18

hahah np ;)
