    Slope intercept form is given as y = mx + b. Try and get the "y" terms on one side and the "x" term and the constant on the other side.

    \[-4y = -2x + 20\]

    So that's almost it but we need "y" not "-4y". Therefore we can divide both sides of the equation by -4.

    you just transform it into y=mx+b so y=(-2x+20)/4
