22. What is the slope-intercept form of 8x-y-6=0?

I know I move the 6 over and that I need to get y by itself but, what do I do with the 8x?

**Reiny**, Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 8:26pmIn general you can do this in 2 steps

Since you want the y all alone on the left side

1. Move all terms except the y term to the right

-y = -8x - 6

2. divide all terms by the coefficient of y , unless it is already y.

**y = 8x + 6**

another example:

4x + 3y - 12 = 0

3y = -4x + 12

y = (-4/3)x + 4
