Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. First determine the slope of your existing line by placing in y=mx+b form and getting m 2. Determine the y0int of the other line by placing in y=mx+b form and taking the b value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The slope of the first equation: 3y=4x+15 y=(4/3)x+5 slpe is 4/3 Intercept of the second equation: y=2x6 intercept is 6 So the final equation is y=(4/3)x6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why is the 4x not turned to a 4x but for the 2x it was turned to a 2x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because when you isolate y in 4x  3y +15 =0 you would subtract 15 and 4x on both sides then divide by 3 3y=4x15 y=4/3x+5
