A company produces accessories for smart phones and tablets. The profit on each smart phone case is $2 and the profit on each tablet case is $3. The company made a profit of $1,200 on the cases last month. The equation 2x + 3y = 1,200 represents the company's profit from cases last month, where x is the number of smart phone cases sold and y is the number of tablet cases sold.
Change the equation into slopeintercept form. Identify the slope and yintercept of the equation. Be sure to show all of your work.
Describe how you would graph this line using the slopeintercept method.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you want to know how i got it well you have to take the equation 2x + 3y = 1,200 2x> 3y= 2x+1,200 now divide 3 by 2x and 1,200 you get> y= 2/3x +400

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to find the slope and yintercept use this y=mx+b (m is slope, b is yintercept.) y= 2/3x(m) +400(b)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well you would plot point (400,0) then use your slope 2/3 (rise over run theory) from point (400,0) go down 2 on the Y axis then to the right 3 points on the x axis. You should have cord (398,3) now draw the line by connecting the dots.
