 Question 58932: This is the equation: 6x=y, and i'm trying to get it into standard form. Is it all right if i pretended there was a zero after the y, then the equation would read 6x=y+0?? I don't think it makes a difference but, anyways, as i was saying: when i put in the zero i subtracted y from both sides and got the standard form of 6x-y=0. then i solved for the y and x intercept, and got (0,0) as x's, and (0,0) as y's. did i do this right?

 Question 58935: how would you write this standard form of a linear equation into slope intercept form? -6x+7y=21. slope-intercept form is y=mx+b. so do you just plug the numbers in? would -6x+7y=21 in slope-intercept form be: y=-6x+21?? Click here to see answer by tutorcecilia(2152)

 Question 59868: Find the slope of the line determined by each equation. 3x+2y=12 I am taking an Algebra class online and I am having problems understanding this unit. I am to do all odd questions because answers are in the back of the book. I am using the 2006 book Intermediate Algebra Third Edition by Alan S. Tussy and R. David Gustafson. I attempted the problem by dividing 3x, then by dividing with 2y, but I do not come up with the correct answer of -3/2. I also can't figure out why this is negative. Could someone please help me?
