Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0uh, well, that would work if we were given two points, but we don't have that here, so we're going to use a different method

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, we're going to take our equation 7x + 9y = 6 and rearrange it so it looks like y = mx + b so let's start off with 7x + 9y = 6 subtract 7x from both sides, what do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0uh, not quite remember, you can't combine 7x and 6, so we leave it like this: 9y = 6  7x, with me so far?
