I am stumped on the slope intercept form. 3x4y = 12. I don't understand why the answer is 3/4x  3. How does it become x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you need to solve for y\[\huge\rm 3x4y=12\] move the `3x`to the right side and then 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ho would you cancel out the 3x from the left side ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13x  4y = 12 3x  3x 4y = 3x +12 4y and then I don't know what do next.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes I saw that but I had already hit post. So I've cancelled out 4 but I still don't understand how the answer becomes 3/4x 3. Where did the 12 go?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm y=\frac{ 3 x}{ 4 }+\frac{ 12 }{ 4 }\] 12/4 = ? you can divide it right!
