Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.17y+2x=4 2x 2x 7y = 2x + 4 is that correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1correct one extra step y = 2/7x + 4/7 whats the slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh ok I see that now. WOW how confusing... I hope I can handle the next on my own.. Thanks for your generous help...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so how would I go about doing a question that asked me this... slope intercept equation of the line whose graph is parallel to y=2x5 and has te yinterceot (0,9) There is no way I could do that one on my own!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1they are parallel so the slope will stay the same y  y1 = m(x x1) y  9 = 2*(x0) y  9 = 2x +9 +9 y = 2x + 9
