Math-Linear Equations
Please let me know if I understand this correctly. Find the slope and the y-intercept of each equation: 1)y-9x= 1/2 +9x= 1/2 + 9x y= 1/2 + 9x slope:9; y-intercept: 1/2 2)2y-6=3x +6 +6 2y=3x + 6 - - 2 2 so then: y=3x+3 3) -2y=6(5-3x) -2y= 30-18x - -- -2 -2 so then: y=-15-18x (...
