y=mx+b where m is slope
If you get y by itself
y=-0.5x+7.5

A and B are any number.

You got the y intercept right. But something is wrong. Can you see it?

Not really sorry. I'm a little confused on standard form.

standard form is Ax+By=C
you are right on that.
Hint:y=mx+b is wrong. where m is SLOPE

In your example for slope intercept form, you have -0.5 for m.

They do not want -0.5 for m right?
They want 0.5

Ya.

Problem says slope: 0.5
slope=m

So let me see your new standard form

I don't understand. I said 0.5x + y = 7.5 above, I think.

0.5x+y=7.5
turns to
y=-0.5x+7.5 if you make y by itself
and y=mx+b
where m is slope
m=-0.5
m=slope

Make m the right slope.

-0.5x + y = 7.5?

Yes, that is correct.
Nice job.

Yes, slope intercept first then standard.
It makes everything easier at the beginning.

Alright thank you so much!

By -2? Isn't it usually be -1 to keep the numbers the same?
@Shalante ?

that's why you multiply by -2 to clear the common denominator of 2

but clearing the fraction/decimal is a must

@Republican31
Hey, he is right.
Multiply everything by -2
like this -2(0.5x+y)=7.5

My... Brain... Hurts... Math since 7:00 am today and it's 9:00 now.

Alright thank you.

-2(-0.5x+y)=7.5)) i mean.

1x - 2y = -15 then?

yes, and you don't need to keep the 1 in front of x

I just wanted to make sure I was supposed to multiply the 7.5 too.

Thanks for clarifying.
Have not done Algebra 1 for a while.
Will always forget one topic about it.

So I see now no integers. Thank you!

Err you know what i mean.

Yea, the rules are correct.

No problem!

So please, no more forms. Too many.
