This is a realllyy tricky problem and I can't find two more solutions to the equation...someone please help!

Find three ordered pairs for the given equation:

4x - 3y = 6
I got one: (3,2)

I need help on this ASAP!! Thankss

They're the same type of questions, but they're different equations.

put in any old x, find y

For example x = 100
400 - 3 y = 6
3 y = 394
y = 131 1/3
(6, 131 1/3)

OK.

I'm not a math teacher -- but how about setting up a table with the multiples of 4 and the multiples of 3.

4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, etc.
3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, etc.

Which numbers -- when subtracted -- he 6?

5. Ms. Sue

*equal 6

6. Damon

Oh, you want whole number solutions?
The slope of this line is 4/3
so from your first point (3,2)
go right 3 and up 4
(6,6)
again go right 3 and up 4
(9,10)

y=4/3x-2

m=4/3=slope

(0,-2) up 4 over 3 = (3,2)
(3,2) up 4 over 3 = (6,6)
(6,6) up 4 over 3 = (9,10)

Thanks, all of you!!

If you cannot learn the GENERAL PROCESS, then you need to be taught the same general thing a million different times.

You need to learn how to abstract ideas and then apply them to specific instances.
