nope, where did the x go?
anonymous

i thought the x would equal 0 when u solve for x

i mean when u solve for y

no, start by subtracting 5x from both sides

5x -3y=-6

-3y=-6

5x -3y=-6 -5x = -5x ----------------- -3y =-6-5x
anonymous
  • anonymous
now divide both sides by -3

y=-5

the equation of a line is given by: y= mx +c where m is the gradient (slope) and C the y -intercept, rearrange your equation in this format and you'll get an answer. so 5x - 3y = -6 becomes -3y = -5x - 6 3y = 5x + 6 y = 5/3 x + 2 so whats your slope?

-6-5x ------ -3

  • anonymous
-6/-3 - 5x/-3 =2 + 5/3x

number next to x is slope , other one is y intercept
