Identify the correct slope and y intercept of the equation 3x  3y = 4.
slope = 1; y intercept at (0, four thirds)
slope = 1; y intercept at (0, four thirds)
slope = 3; y intercept at (0, 1)
slope = 3; y intercept at (0, 1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you need to put it in y = mx + b form.....then m is the slope and b is the y intercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13x  3y = 4 3y = 3x + 4 (multiply by 1 to get 3y positive) 3y = 3x  4 are you with me so far ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13y = 3x  4 (now divide by 3) y = 3/3x  4/3 y = x  4/3 so your answer is : slope 1, and y intercept (0,4/3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Choose the equation of the line passing through the point (2, 6) and parallel to y = one halfx  8. y = one halfx + 7 y = one halfx + 5 y = 2x + 7 y = 2x + 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you are looking for a parallel line, the slope will be the same as the original equation. In this case, the slope is 1/2. Understand ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now we will use y = mx + b.....m = 1/2 and we can use points (2,6) now lets sub... 6 = 1/2(2) + b can you solve for b ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.16 = 1/2(2) + b 6 = 1 + b 6 + 1 = b 7 = b therefore, your parallel equation is : y = 1/2x + 7
