Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since you have a denominator of 3, first multiply both sides by 3. Then add or subtract the terms on the right side to move them to the left side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y = 2/3 x  7 Multiply both sides by 3: (3)y = (3)(2/3 x  7) What do you get? Remember to distribute the 3 on the right side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13y = 2x  21 2x + 21 2x + 21  2x + 3y + 21 = 0 If you don't like to have a negative sign at the beginning (with the x term), you can multiply both sides by 1 and get 2x  3y  21 = 0
