From the last problem we did, can you solve for y by subtracting 8x from both sides?

i have 3y=8-10x now what lol
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
now divide by 3 the Left hand side and LHS of the equation to solve for y

okay well im wrong y= 2.6 - 3.3
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
\[\frac{3y}{3}=\frac{8-2x}{3}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
wouldnt 8-2x/3 stay the same?
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
\[\frac{\cancel3y}{\cancel3}=\frac{8-2x}{3}\]\[\large y=\frac{8}{3}-\frac{\color{red}2x}{\color{red}3}\]

for 8/3 i have 2.6 repeating
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
that's your slope :) Your slope is the value that multiplies to your value of x it follows the form \[\large y=\color{red}mx +b\] and in this case your m=2/3

for 2/3 i have 0.66 repeating.

You don't need to put it in decimal form, necessarily
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
You could leave it as a fraction.

  • anonymous
so y=2/3x + 2.6
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
and the 2.6 can stay as 8/3 too.
anonymous
  • anonymous
y=2/3x+8/3 so this is the answer all together?
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
you're only looking for your slope, right? i mentioned a few posts above where you can find your slope. your slope is multiplied by your "x"
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
so your slope would be \[\huge y= \color{red}{\frac{2}{3}}x+\frac{8}{3}\] the RED portion,is yoru slope.it is multiplied by your x-value.
