Do you know the equation for the slopeintercept form?

no this is a pretest so i havent learned it exactly yet

The slopeintercept form is: y= ax+b

jiji501Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
As you can see, we're trying to isolate the y on one side and bring everything else to the other.

The y is also positive and has only one of them ( So there is not 2y = ax + b for example)

im still confused

Let's do it step by step. Can you make your y by itself? (Bring the x over)

ok. and no, i dont know how to do any of it. Im new to this kind of stuff and its confusing lol

I'll give you a simple equation x + 1 = 5

jiji501Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Would it be mathematically correct to say that x = 4? Because x+11 = 51

jiji501Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Exactly! So it is the same thing here but we add something harder. We have to move variables to the other side as well!

4x 3y = 12 Would it be correct to say that 4x4x3y = 124x ???

ok but whats next?
 one year ago

jiji501Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Well 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.

How do we get rid of the 3 in front of y?
 one year ago

jiji501Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Well there is one y but I mean what is on the other side of y
 one year ago

jiji501Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
what is 12/3 and 4x/3
 one year ago

itsjustme_lolBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
4 is the first one, the other us a decimal 1.33 repeating
 one year ago

jiji501Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Correct. You could also leave it as a fraction.
 one year ago

jiji501Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
That would be your answer. 4/3 is the slope and 4 is the yintercept

pottersheepBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
It has to be in y = mx + b form
 one year ago

itsjustme_lolBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so it would be D?
 one year ago

jiji501Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
We just did it together....y = 4/3x 4
 one year ago

jiji501Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
You said it yourself.... 4!!!
