Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is y the LHS of an equation for a line? If so, the x should be moved to the numerator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, I kind of messed up on writing the equation. It's supposed to be like this:\[y=\frac{ 11 }{ 9 }x+\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ax+By=C Eliminate the fractions in the problem. Do you know how you can do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Denominators are 9 & 3 which equal 27. If you multiply the entire equation by the common denominator (27), you can eliminate the fraction. 27 (y=11x/9 + 1/3) 27y = 33x+9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To reach standard form, get the x & y on the same side of the equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Get ride of the fractions by multiplying each side of the equation by 27. 27 y = 33 x + 9 Then move the x term to the LHS. 33x +27y = 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait, can't you multiply the equations by 9?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You could. 9y = 11x+3 That should have been the choice...wasn't thinking...rusty

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would give you 11x + 9y = 3
