Get it into y = mx + b form by solving for y. Start by distributing
m will be the slope, b is the y-intercept
I don't understand
First, distribute everything.
you need to use the distributive property first and then put it into slope-intercept form
Agreed. There is a specific form for finding slope and y-intercept. This is called the slope-intercept for, which @peachpi has stated.
I distributed the 3 by mulitiplying both terms in parentheses by 3. Now distribute the 6 in the 2nd parentheses. |dw:1437354317676:dw|
I've heard of slope intercept I just don't know how to use it
slope intercept is one of the forms to write the equation of a line. y = mx + b where m is slope and b is y-intercept. For example the equation y = 7x - 2 has a slope of 7 and a y-intercept of -2.
What class are you on?
And you don't know how to use slope-intercept or you haven't heard of it?
I don't understand how to use it, I've heard of it though. I just finished a lesson about it
Ok, so the slope-intercept form is used to make a line. As @peachpi mentioned, in y=mx+b, "m" is the slope and "b" is the y-intercept. Once you solve for these two variables, you can draw a line
In this problem, you are given enough information to attain the slope-intercept, but you need to work through the problem
First, distribute the whole problem and then we'll work through the rest
Okay I believe that once distributed the problem would look something like this 3y-6+6x+6-2=0
Yes, now combine like terms
Were you able to do it?
@sewandowski yes I was able to distribute.
what did you get?
look above, it's in the comments
@peachpi okay I combined like terms 6x+3y-2
Hehe, that's what I asked for XD
Now all you need to do is get y alone
You started out with an equation. What happened to the equal sign? 1. Subtract 6x from both sides. 2. Divide both sides by 6
okay now I'm confused @peachpi and @sewandowski have been telling me one thing and now @Mertsj is saying something different
Hahaha, no, we're all telling you the same thing but in different words
What @Mertsj told you are the steps to isolate y
What is m in your equation?
um, i don't know.
Look at the value being multiplied by x...
What is m?
m is the slope of the line.
What is b?
@kaetyn78 What is b?
you spelled my name wrong, its Kaelyn
b is the y intercept. Now...answer the questions that the problem asks.
Don't sweat the small stuff.
