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

jiji501 Group TitleBest 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)

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

Would it be mathematically correct to say that x = 4? Because x+11 = 51

jiji501 Group TitleBest 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 ???
 2 years ago

jiji501 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
So 3y = 124x?

ok but whats next?

3/2?
 2 years ago

jiji501 Group TitleBest 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?
 2 years ago

itsjustme_lol Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
divide it by 3?
 2 years ago

jiji501 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
By 3, close ;)

jiji501 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
So now... y = ?
 2 years ago

jiji501 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Well there is one y but I mean what is on the other side of y

what is 12/3 and 4x/3
 2 years ago

itsjustme_lol Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
4 is the first one, the other us a decimal 1.33 repeating
 2 years ago

jiji501 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Correct. You could also leave it as a fraction.
 2 years ago

jiji501 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
So y = 4/3x 4
 2 years ago

jiji501 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
That would be your answer. 4/3 is the slope and 4 is the yintercept

It has to be in y = mx + b form
 2 years ago

itsjustme_lol Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so it would be D?
 2 years ago

jiji501 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
We just did it together....y = 4/3x 4
 2 years ago

jiji501 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
You said it yourself.... 4!!!
