Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0rewrite that equation into `slopeintercept` form \[\huge\rm y=mx+b\] ^^slope intercept form where m is slope b is yintercept can you solve that equation for y ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm same thing how would you cancel out the 3 from right side ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0notice you have 3 times y to "undo" the times, think "divide"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you already moved x to the right side \[\huge\rm 3y=x+6\] it's `3 times y` opposite of multiplication is division so divide by 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 3 divided by 6 is 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we have to solve for y so just divide both sides by 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm \frac{ 3y }{ 3 } =\frac{ x+6}{ 3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x+6)/3 is same as \[\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }x +\frac{ 6 }{ 3 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x divide by 3 is zero ? how ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is invisible one \[\huge\rm \frac{ 3y }{ 3 } =\frac{ 1x+6}{ 3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you are saying 1/3x = 0 nope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i thought x was 0 thats why

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i forgot that x equals one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no x is just a variable remember we need the equation in slope intercept form \[\huge\rm y=mx+b\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes right so what's the yintercept ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the y intercept is 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm y=\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }x +\frac{ 6 }{ 3 }\] divide 6/3 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and is the x intercept 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yintercept is 2 right xintercept when line cross xaxis and y=0 so to find xintercept substitute y for 0 solve for x

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm 0=\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }+2\](replaced y for 0) solve for x to find xintercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=mx + b in this equation `m` not `mx`
