Subtract 3x from both sides

Subtract 8 from both sides

 Solved by pluggable solver: Converting Linear Equations in Standard form to Slope-Intercept Form (and vice versa) Start with the given equation Subtract from both sides Multiply both sides by Distribute Multiply Rearrange the terms Reduce any fractions So the equation is now in slope-intercept form () where (the slope) and (the y-intercept)
