Write y = -2/3x - 4

A: 2x + 3y = -12
B: 2x + 3y = -4
C: -2x + 3y = -12
D: 2x + 3y = 12

Honestly, i'm a bit confused on this. I checked my text-book and I got nothing. I think the answer is B, since the slope is -2/3, but since we convert, I think you have to make it positive. The Y value is already given: y = -2/3x - 4, and - 4 is essentially -4.

Thanks! ^-^

  1. got nothing? get real.
    Anyway, multiply by 3 to clear the fraction
    y = -2/3x - 4
    3y = -2x - 12
    Now add 2x to both sides
    2x+3y = -12

    yes, you do appear to be confused ...
