    @buddhababy002 : Solve this equation, make y the subject. This will help you to convert the line in slope-intercept form.

    you do not need to, just move 5 to the right side, and divide both sides by 4

    Subtract 5 both the sides: \[4y = -31 - 5 \implies 4y = -36\] Divide by 4 now: \[y = \frac{-36}{4} \implies y = -9\]

    so u subtract both sides by 5 cause it doesn't have the variable right?

    I subtract 5 because we want to make variable on one side and constant terms on other side..
