So, the equation that I'm given is this: 7y + 12x -2 = 0 and I'm told to determine the y-intercept and the slope of this line, but I'm not entirely sure how to go about doing that. Any help would be appreciated!

Any help would be appreciated! Manipulate into the form y=mx+c. m is the slope and c is the y-intercept

Any help would be appreciated! If you solve the equation for y in terms of x you will get the equation in slope intercept form.

The gradient ( ) is , and the y-intercept ( ) is .
