Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The slopeintercept form of a line is \[\large y =mx + b\] So we need to make our expression look like that \[\large y  3(x  1) = 0\] Where would be start?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not nearly as complicated, all we need to do is rearrange our equation so that y = something since y = mx + b is the form we want So from \[\large y3(x1) = 0\] the first step would be to distribute that 3 into the parenthesis...we want to simplify this a bit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be 3x3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well yes it could be...normally we would distribute the minus sign with it but that's okay..but we have to make sure that now we have \[\large y  (3x  3) = 0\] right? What would be next...remember we want y = ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so do I multiply 0*3x or 0*3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No we dont need to multiply at all here \[\large y  (3x  3) = 0\] If the only thing stopping us from having that y = something is a \(\large (3x  3)\) then all we have to do is add it to the other side \[\large y \cancel{ (3x  3) + (3x  3)} = 0 + (3x  3)\] \[\large y = ?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so y=3 srry im kind of clueless

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No dont worry about it algebra is always tricky in the beginning, actually depending on what you just asked then you're right or wrong lol Well....if we have \(\large y = 0 + (3x  3)\) that just means we have \[\large y = 3x  3\] right? So the slope would be? the yintercept would be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so the slope would be 3 and the yintercept is 3
