Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright so first you want y by itself correct? what can you do to get y by itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have 4y=123x 3 would be your slope and 12 is your y intercept?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not exactly , the equation says y=mx+b, not 4y=mx+b. so you need one more step to get y's constant to be one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you should have it in y=mx+b where m = slope and b is your y intercept
