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!
$\displaystyle \begin{array}{rcrcrc}
7y + 12x - 2 = 0\\
7y = -12x + 2\\
y = \frac{-12x}{7} + \frac{2}{7}
\end{array}$
The gradient ($\displaystyle m$) is $\displaystyle \frac{-12x}{7}$, and the y-intercept ($\displaystyle c$) is $\displaystyle \frac{2}{7}$.
