    that's a standard form of slope equation to solve for y you need to move the `ax` and `b` to the right side how would you cancel out ax from left side ? would you subtract add divide or multiply ?

    it's ax `+` by ax is positive at left side to cancel it out apply the opposite of `addition`

    y = (c-ax)/b put the parentheses to show that c-ax is divide by b not just ax
