    y=mx+b is slope intercept form where m is slope and b is y-intercept you have to write 3x+y=-4 in slope intercept so solve for y

    \[\huge\rm 3x+y=-4\] move `3x` to the right side

    how would you cancel out the 3x from the left side ? would u add 3x both sides ? or subtract 3x both sides ?
