1. 13x+2y=-6
Transpose constants and terms in x to the right hand side to isolate y:
2y = -13x -6
Divide throughout by the coefficient of y:
y=-13x/2 -3
=>
m=-13/2
b=-3

Still looking at how to solve these... Both are cubic polynomials? 43x^3 + 13x^2 + 18x - 456 = 0 DO I divide first by x-1? 2x(3x+2)^2=312 Honestly: I would graph the equations and find the roots first. I don't see them off hand.
