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.
1. Change the equation into slopeintercept form. Identify the slope and yintercept of the equation. Be sure to show all of your work.
2. Describe how you would graph this line using the slopeintercept method. Be

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x + 3y = 1,200 Change the equation into slopeintercept form. 2x + 3y = 1200 [original equation] 3y = 1200  2x [subtract 2x on each side] y = 400  2x/3 [divide each side by 3] y = 2/3 x + 400 Identify the slope and the yintercept of the equation. Slope = 2/3 yintercept = 400 Describe how you would graph this line using the slopeintercept method. The yintercept is 400, so a graph of this line would intersect the yaxis at 400. Then, for each 2 steps down, 3 must be taken across. dw:1438235647516:dw
