## Mrszbieberxo 3 years ago y=-2/3-2 –2x + 3y = -6 change the equation into slope-intercept form. Be sure to show all of your work. Identify the slope and y-intercept of the equation. Describe how you would graph this line using the slope-intercept method. Be sure to write in complete sentences.

1. Mathhelp346

Well the first one is already in slope-intercept form

2. Mathhelp346

For the second one, you would try to get y by itself. So you would add -2x to the right and divide it all by 3 |dw:1354248752347:dw|

3. Mathhelp346

Do you understand so far?

4. Mathhelp346

Wait I just looked at the first one again and it doesn't have an x.

5. Mrszbieberxo

oops i wrote it wron its y=-2/3x-2

6. Mathhelp346

Oh ok. It's still in slope-intercept form.

7. Mrszbieberxo

is that like y=(m)x+b?

8. Mathhelp346

Yea, that's slope-intercept form. Do you know how to graph the equations?

9. Mrszbieberxo

not exactly :/

10. Mathhelp346

Ok

11. Mathhelp346

So in y=mx+b, m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

12. Mrszbieberxo

alright so how would i set that on a graph cause i've always confused which side to place it on .

13. Mathhelp346

Slope is rise over run. For example, in the first equation, the slope is -2/3. That means you would start at 0, move up 2, and LEFT 3 since its negative. If it was positive, you would move to the right. |dw:1354249157361:dw|

14. Mathhelp346

Do you understand it?

15. Mathhelp346

Well I've gotta go but if you need any more help, Google is always your friend.

thank you so much
