Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0anotyher way to do this is to rearrange the equation to the form y = mx + c where m = slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05y + 6x  2 = 0 5y + 6x = 2 5y = 6x + 2 divide through by 5 y = (6/5)x + 2/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y = mx + c is called the slopeintercept form of the equation of the line m = slope and c = intercept on yaxis.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its odd in US they write y = mx + b and in UK we write y = mx + c  it doesn't matter which you use of course.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that last equation is called the pointslope form  used if you know the slope and a point on the line
