Rearrage the following equation and hence state the gradient and the y-intercept.

2y = 8x + 10

Do i just go:

y = mx + c

2y = 8x + 10

y = (8x + 10) /2

y = 4x + 5

or do i have to rearrange it so that it is stated in a different way?

Please help.

**drwls**, Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 3:30amYou have rearranged it perfectly into

y = mx + b form,

just by dividing both sides by two.

m (which is 4) is the slope and b (which is 5) is the y-intercept.
