Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to get the slope y=mx+c so you need to transform the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03x2y+8=0 2y=3x+8 divide the whole equation to 2 u will get y=3/2(x)+4 so the slope is 3/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so once i get the y intercept why do i divide it by 2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can go about moving everything around; or, you can just determine the slope and y intercept in 3 moves. 1: y int is the value of y when x=0 2: the slope is the change in y when x changes by 1; so find the value of y when x=1 3: subtract the value when x=0 from the value when x=1 and you have your slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3as i told you just separate y on LHS you will get y = 3/2x+4 now compare it with y=mx+b to get slope and yintercept here b= yintercept and m = slope do it now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.33x – 2y + 8 = 0. subtract 8 from both sides what you get???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3now subtract 3x from both sides what you get??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why substract i thought you you add it? but 2y=83x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3because 3x on left side has positive sign to cancel it out you have to subtract 3x on both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.32y=83x now divide both sides by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3no you have to do one step now you have a general equation for line in slope intercept form that is y = mx+b here m = slope and b = y intercept can you find the slope and yintercept now from y = 4+3/2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3these are respective values for slope and yintercept
