Please let me know if I understand this correctly.
Find the slope and the yintercept of each equation:
1)y9x= 1/2
+9x= 1/2 + 9x
y= 1/2 + 9x
slope:9; yintercept: 1/2
2)2y6=3x
+6 +6
2y=3x + 6
 
2 2
so then: y=3x+3
3) 2y=6(53x)
2y= 3018x
 
2 2
so then: y=1518x
(slope: 18; yintercept: 15)
Thank you!!!!!!

1) correct, but the usual form is y=mx+b, so you'd have y=9x + 1/2
2) you forgot do divide 3x by 2. y = 3/2 x + 3
3)You're getting things mixed up. Don't try to rearrange things in your head.
2y = 30  18x
2y = 18x + 30
y = 9x  15 
Thank you so much  that clears it up for me!!! It's just been awhile since I've done this.
