Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x + y = 3 we know that the general form of slope is y=mx +c where m is the slope and c is the intercept and so , i am trying to make the given equation to look like the general form => y=(1)x+3 find the points:dw:1357702924977:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, so your equation is x+y=3 In order to turn this into slopeintercept form, you will subtract the x, leaving you with y=x+3. Similar to y=mx+b, right? Then, 3=b(yintercept) and the slope is 1. Slope is: \[\frac{ rise }{ run }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then, you just do the same. Except you would have to divide both sides by 5. dw:1357703298547:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok I knew you had to do something to both sides, but I was not sure what to do once I got a fraction
