I greatly need some help with my Algebra homework. These are the main ones I'm having problems with. It says to find the slope and y-intercept.

EDIT!!!

Help please?!?!?

Oh, and anyone who needs help with math can post here for questions from now on too.

Thanks in advance,

Fav

EDIT: Okay i have a new question(Check last post)

slope=m

m=Change in y over the change in x.

if you have a graphing calculator, go to y=, and type it in

m=Change in y over the change in x.

if you have a graphing calculator, go to y=, and type it in

The easiest way to do that would be to put the equations into slope-intercept form, which basically means solve for y in terms of x. So, for the first one, you'd add 4y to both sides, add 3 to both sides, and end up with 4y=7x+3. Divide by 4 to get y by itself, and you have slope-intercept form, in this case y=7/4x+3/4. The coefficient before x is your slope (in this case 7/4) and the number afterwards is your y-intercept (3/4.)

#4

Rearrange to get them in the form of y = mx + c

m is the slope.

c is the y axis intercept.

so first one:

7x-4y=-3

4y = 7x + 3

y = (7/4)x + (3/4)

compare to y = mx + c shows m = 7/4 and c (intercept) = 3/4

Edit: Beaten to it ^

m is the slope.

c is the y axis intercept.

so first one:

7x-4y=-3

4y = 7x + 3

y = (7/4)x + (3/4)

compare to y = mx + c shows m = 7/4 and c (intercept) = 3/4

Edit: Beaten to it ^

whoa these ppl are smart. hey man what grade math is that? grade 10? or 11? and um im confused i need to learn that stuff...

#6

y=mx+b. M is your slope, b is your y-intercept. Then you just have to isolate your y and you've got er.

#7

I'm not really that great with Algebra, but the slope is y=mx+b. oh and if you don't get any of the other posts, you can go to google to find the answer. I've done it before

#8

10 or 11? I learned this stuff in 7th grade.

But yeah, use y = mx + b form. And in case nobody has mentioned it, the line y = 8 has a slope of 0. Horizontal lines have a slope of 0 and vertical lines have an undefined slope.

if you rearranged it, wouldnt the 4y remain negative?

#10

^ Yeah, but you divide by -4, so the 7/4 and 3/4 will become positive.

#11

ah i see

#12

y=mx + b

Slope formula!

Slope formula!

#13

i take art, in a college, so im gonna say the answer is MATH ISNT REAL ITS A CONSPIRACY

....me dumb

....me dumb

holy! wtf? 7th grade? wait wait wait is this the slope- rise/run thingy? cause now im getting worried, im gonna choke next semister wen my math class starts

#15

y=mx + b

Slope formula!

Slope intercept form fails in comparison to point-slope form.

y - y0 = m(x - x0)

Slope-intercept is where it's at.

#16

i learned it in 7th grade too.

use slope intercept form y =mx + b.

im in algebra 2 trig now. its confusing as hell.

use slope intercept form y =mx + b.

im in algebra 2 trig now. its confusing as hell.

#17

I never really liked math till I got to Calculus. The real-life applications in Calculus made me totally love math, especially the vector-calc part.

#18

Slope intercept form fails in comparison to point-slope form.

y - y0 = m(x - x0)

Slope-intercept is where it's at.

Yeah, that's the way to go

#19

I just realized the mistake in my post. It's supposed to say "Point-slope is where it's at."

#20

I learned this stuff in 7th grade too and now I am starting calculus in 11th grade.

#21

10 or 11? I learned this stuff in 7th grade.

Same here man.... it amazes me how kids these days completely fail maths.

Incredible!

#22

In my high school there were sophomores taking basic algebra. Many of my classmates learned that stuff in 5th grade. It's ridiculous.

This thread is no match for the almighty:

The Math/Science Help Thread!!!

I learned about dark matter because of that thread.... it is simply so enlightening

So my fellow Pit users, i beg of you, do not fill our holy sanctuary of a forum with such threads, which have already been started. That path leads to eternal damnation! However, since the search bar is a load of crap, your transgressions shall be forgiven. Go in peace my brothers and spread the good news!

That thread is pretty cool. I haven't been on it for a couple days.

ok quick question

let's see:

2(3x-3)<6(x-1)

break down

6x-6<6x-6

add 6 to both - sixes

6x<6x

divide both sides by 6

x<x final answer

that answer is False right?

let's see:

2(3x-3)<6(x-1)

break down

6x-6<6x-6

add 6 to both - sixes

6x<6x

divide both sides by 6

x<x final answer

that answer is False right?

yup its false

yep thats what i thought, but i wanted to be sure

thanks
