How would you convert y  (2) = 4/3(x  0) to standard form?
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
One moment
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So the first thing you must do is put the equation in y=mx+b
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Once you do that I'll continue explaining
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So you get y=4/3x+2
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Now standard form is Ax+By=C
 one year ago

ValentinaT Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Okay. So you had been simplifying the equation I wrote?
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Sorry computer crashed
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So now you need to find the A, B, and C
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You take t right from the equation
 one year ago

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

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So you get the equation: 4/3x+y=2
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Sorry it took so long I had to use a different computer.
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Does that make sense? Any questions?
 one year ago

ValentinaT Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Okay, thank you. Could you help me with one more thing?
 one year ago

ValentinaT Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
How do you turn that equation into a slope intercept form equation?
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
The one that's in standard form now?
 one year ago

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

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
If so, this is what you do:
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You pretty much just go backwards
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So you first put it into y=mx+b
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So you get =4/3x+2
 one year ago

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

ValentinaT Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Okay, thank you.
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I'm back so sorry for the wait
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
OK so you have y=4/3x+2
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
subtract 4/3x from both sides
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
The slope is a fraction so you have to multiply both sides by the denominatior
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so multiply each by three
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now you have 3y=4x+6 (finished)
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So next you add 4x to both sides
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and you're final answer is 4x+3y=6
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
And 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)
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Do you have any questions?
 one year ago

ValentinaT Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
But you said that 4x + 3y = 6 was intercept slope form right?
 one year ago

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

ValentinaT Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Okay, thank you!
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
No prob! Any more questions or are you good?
 one year ago

ValentinaT Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Kind 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.
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
let me type it out
 one year ago

iluvlucy Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
y(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
 one year ago

Thank you so much for all your help! If I could give you more than one medal I would. Does this look about right?
