How can just adding one or subtracting one make the difference? I did the first one but can't come up with the second one. The first equation is:

x = 4y + 1 Subtract 1 from both sides

x - 1 = 4y Now divide both sides by 4

(x/4) - (1/4) = y

My slope is (¼) and my y-intercept is (-¼) What is it for the second equation?
