Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2example: 5x+10y = 20 5x+10y5x = 205x 10y = 5x+20 10y/10 = (5x+20)/10 y = 1/2x + 2 The slope here is 1/2. This is not the answer as it's just an example

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2look back at my example `5x+10y = 20` when I solved for y. What was the first thing I did? How did I move the 5x over?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2compare `5x+10y = 20` to `5x+10y5x = 205x` what's different?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hopefully you see the 5x being subtracted? or no?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok so go back to the original `2x2y = 6` what do we do first?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2maybe it might help to think of it as 0+2x2y = 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we have to undo that +2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the answer won't be negative?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so we now have 2y = 2x+6 we can then divide both sides by 2 to get 2y/(2) = (2x+6)/(2) y = x3

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so 2x  2y = 6 turns into y = x3 after we isolate y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2compare `y = 1x3` to `y = mx+b` m = slope b = yintercept
