Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Let us make this y = mx + b form, to do this we need to get y by itself on 1 side of the equation. We can start by adding 6x, that leaves us with y = 6x  4. In the structure y = mx + b, m is the slope and b is the y intercept. Thus in y = 6x  4, the slope is 6 and the y intercept is (0,4) as the coordinate pair system works as: (x, y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in y=mx+b m is the slope and b is the y intercept lets turn 6x+y=4 into y=mx+b by having y alone on one sides:\[6x+y=4\]add 6x:\[y=6x4\]so the slope (m) is 6 and the y intercept (b) is 4
