Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's a bit off. If I remember correctly in slope intercept form you're supposed to isolate the y. Do you know what PEMDAS is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i do, so I solve y first and use PEMDAS?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so first just start by adding 4x to both sides It will come out as \[6y = 4x +18\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Divide 6 to both sides \[y = \frac{ 4x }{ 6 } + \frac{ 18 }{ 6 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1simplify \[y = \frac{ 4x }{ 6 } + 3\] And you have that answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh okay! so we leave the fraction as is then?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1same with the other one. 3y + x = 5 Subtract x from both sides 3y = x + 5 Divide 3 to both sides y = x/3 + 5/3 You can't simplify on this one sooooo that's the answer!
