can someone please explain "converting to slopeintercept form" to me please? i've watched countless videos on it and i don't understand how to do these problems. all i really need is an explained stepbystep on how to do these types of problems. all of them are usually converting standard form to slopeintercept form.

Reiny
suppose you have an equation in standard form
e.g.
4x  5y  8 = 0
step 1. "move" all terms except the y term to the other side
5y = 4x + 8
step 2. divide each term by the coefficient of the y term
5y/5 = 4x/5 + 8/5
y = (4/5)x  8/5
all it takes is 2 steps
