anonymous 3 years ago Write the following equation in slope-intercept form. - y + 6 = 0

1. anonymous

Slope intercept form involves getting y by itself. So you have y = mx + b. So start by subtracting the 6.

2. anonymous

the question is wrong. it's x/2-y+6=0

3. anonymous

$\frac{x}{2} - y + 6 = 0$ ?

4. anonymous

yes that's right

5. anonymous

Ok, well to get y by itself, all you have to do is literally add it to the other side.

6. anonymous

x/2+6=y+0?

7. anonymous

Yes. y + 0 is simply "y"

8. anonymous

clearly..then you subract 6 which is x/2=y-6 then you cant even get y alone???

9. anonymous

No, your solution is as it was. That is slope intercept form: $y = \frac{1}{2}x + 6$

10. anonymous

Remember that: $\frac{1}{2} x = \frac{x}{2}$

11. anonymous

would it just be y=x/2+6?

12. anonymous

Yep.
