Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the equation is 4x + 5y = 15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OKay so slope intercept form is Y=mx+b. The letter B is the Y intercept, this means the point in the graph where the line goes through Y. Got it so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK so you want to get Y by itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if you want Y on one side of the equation by itself what do you do?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeap, solve \(\bf 4x + 5{\color{brown}{ y}} = 15\) for "y" see what you get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do I subtract 4x from the left side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I did that and got: 5y = 15 4x I think I'm suppose to divide 5 from all of the numbers & got: y = 3 4/5x or y = 4/5x + 3 ????

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well yes, divide by 5 thus \(\bf 4x + 5y = 15\implies 5y=154x\implies y=\cfrac{4x+15}{5} \\ \quad \\ y=\cfrac{4}{5}x+\cfrac{\cancel{15}}{\cancel{5}}\implies y=\cfrac{4}{5}x+3\impliedby \textit{slopeintercept form}\) you'd put the "x" part first on the righthandside
