Q:
# what is the slope intercept form of the linear equation 4x + 2y = 24 drag and drop the appropriate number, symbol, or variable to each box

Accepted Solution

A:

The answer is: y = -2x+12

4x+2y=24=

4x-4x+2y=24-4x=

2y=24-4x

Divide each piece by 2=

2y/2=24/2-4x/2

y=12-2x

But, slope intercept form is y=mx + b so you must put the second part in reverse, making the answer to the equation be y=-2x+12

(Don't forget the - on -2)

4x+2y=24=

4x-4x+2y=24-4x=

2y=24-4x

Divide each piece by 2=

2y/2=24/2-4x/2

y=12-2x
