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.

    Well the first one is already in slope-intercept form

    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|

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

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

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

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

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

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

    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|
