    Can you solve for y?

    like 1/3x + 2 y=1/3+3 I don't know

    That is a good try, but when we distribute the 1/3, I get 1/3x-2 instead. Does that make sense?

    yes, because of -6

    Right, good, so that gives us y+1=1/3x-2 so far

    Then to move the +1 over to the other side we need to subtract 1 on both sides:|dw:1440783242057:dw|

    well, 0,3 for y, and do up 1 and right 3

    Very close. The y intercept is 0, -3
