I always get stuck on this. I have 4x  2y = 6 and I have to get into slope intercept form. I got this far 4x  4x  2y = 6  4x = 2y = 6  4x, now what?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Slope intercept form is y=mx+b. m is the slope, and b is the y intercept. 4x  2y = 6 2y = 4x + 6 Subtract 4x from both sides y = 2x  3 Divide both sides by 2 to get y by itself That's it. y = 2x  3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks, you. The dividing part always confuses me because of the x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Solve the equation for y 4x  2y = 6 Since you need to get rid of 4x from left, subtract 4x from both sides. (Write the right side as written below, 4x + 6, not 6  4x, to follow the y = mx + b form). 4x  4x  2y = 4x + 6 The 4x and 4x terms on left side add up to zero 2y =  4x + 6 Now divide both sides by 2 y = 2x  3
