Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The slopeintercept form is: y= ax+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As you can see, we're trying to isolate the y on one side and bring everything else to the other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The y is also positive and has only one of them ( So there is not 2y = ax + b for example)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's do it step by step. Can you make your y by itself? (Bring the x over)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok. and no, i dont know how to do any of it. Im new to this kind of stuff and its confusing lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would it be mathematically correct to say that x = 4? Because x+11 = 51

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Exactly! So it is the same thing here but we add something harder. We have to move variables to the other side as well!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04x 3y = 12 Would it be correct to say that 4x4x3y = 124x ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well as you can see, we've already isolated the y. What we want to do is get only one y and to make it positive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well there is one y but I mean what is on the other side of y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04 is the first one, the other us a decimal 1.33 repeating

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct. You could also leave it as a fraction.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That would be your answer. 4/3 is the slope and 4 is the yintercept
