I know that the equation is y=mx+b but how do you solve a problem that is like 10y - 12x = 8? Answer by longjonsilver(2297)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!re-arrange it to the form you need, ie 1y equals, like so... 10y-12x=8 10y = 12x + 8 y = 1.2x + 0.8 so now, m=1.2 ie the gradient is +1.2 (just over 1). A gradient of 1 is a line at 45 degrees (for equal scales on the 2 axes) jon
