Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How would you convert y  (2) = 4/3(x  0) to standard form?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So the first thing you must do is put the equation in y=mx+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Once you do that I'll continue explaining

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now standard form is Ax+By=C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. So you had been simplifying the equation I wrote?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sorry computer crashed

iluvlucy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So now you need to find the A, B, and C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You take t right from the equation

iluvlucy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So your A is the number before x (4/3), your B is the number before y (1), and your Cis the remaining number (2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So you get the equation: 4/3x+y=2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sorry it took so long I had to use a different computer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Does that make sense? Any questions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, thank you. Could you help me with one more thing?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How do you turn that equation into a slope intercept form equation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The one that's in standard form now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So from 4/3x+y=2 into standard.... is that what you're asking?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If so, this is what you do:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You pretty much just go backwards

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So you first put it into y=mx+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Could you hold on maybe thirty minutes? I gotta go to piano.... I promise I'll answer your question when I get home

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm back so sorry for the wait

iluvlucy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1OK so you have y=4/3x+2

iluvlucy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1subtract 4/3x from both sides

iluvlucy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The slope is a fraction so you have to multiply both sides by the denominatior

iluvlucy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so multiply each by three

iluvlucy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you have 3y=4x+6 (finished)

iluvlucy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So next you add 4x to both sides

iluvlucy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and you're final answer is 4x+3y=6

iluvlucy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And for the question before this one I forgot to let you know that in standard form you can't have a fraction, so you simply multiply both sides by the denominator and you'd end up with 4x+3y=6... (4/3x times 3 is 4, 2 times 3 is 6, and of course y times 3 is 3y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you have any questions?

ValentinaT

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But you said that 4x + 3y = 6 was intercept slope form right?

iluvlucy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, standard.... slopeintercept is y=4/3x+2

iluvlucy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No prob! Any more questions or are you good?

ValentinaT

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Kind of, it's just that for the questions I asked you, I have to show my work, and I'm trying how to write that out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y(2)=4/3(x0) y+2=4/3(x0) (0,2) 2=4/3(0)+b 2=0+b 2=b y=4/3x+2 A=4/3 B=1 C=2 4/3x+y=2 (multiply each side by 3) 4x+3y=6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you so much for all your help! If I could give you more than one medal I would. Does this look about right?
