 Question 52508: I need to graph: 2x - y = -16 I know how to graph, and can find the solution sets, however, I need to figure out the 'formula' (not sure if that's what it's called) but I mean, like, for the problem: x + 2y = 0 the 'formula' is y = -1/2x, and then you can plug any number in for x, and it works. When I try to get the 'formula' for 2x - y = -16 I can only figure out one that will work if x is a positive number, or only work if x is a negative number, but I can't figure out one that will work if x is either negative or positive. Could anyone help me figure out a 'formula' that will work no matter what number you plug in for x? lol, I hope someone understands my question :o) Thanks, ~ Jasmine Click here to see answer by stanbon(57361)

 Question 52576: Hi, I just read about graphing slopes, formulas and all that stuff and am pretty confused... When I try to solve the below problem, I'm getting the right answer, except I'm getting a negative answer instead of positive... The problem: "Find the slope and y-intercept of the line whose equation is given and then graph the line. 3x + 5y + 10 = 0" My effort: 3x + 5y + 10 = 0 or 3x + 5y = -10 or 5y = -3x + -10 or y = -3/5x + -2 M = -3/5 Y-intercept = (0,-2) I checked in the back of the book, and the correct answer is: M = 3/5 y-intercept = (0,2) But even after going over the problem, I can't figure out why I get a negative, and they get a positive... Any help would be very much appreciated! (I don't need help with the graphing part though, I think I've got that :o) Thanks, ~ Jasmine Click here to see answer by Nate(3500)
