Hello everyone... I'm new here, first post and all...
So I was wondering if someone could help me out with the following equation... I'm using MyMathLab and have exhausted all of my tries, otherwise I wouldn't have asked here... Anyway, here's the equation...
The following equation is the standard form of a line. Solve for y.
3x-9y=18
(Use integers or fractions for any numbers in the expression. Simplify your answer.)
Here's the work that I did...
3x-9y=18
-9y=18-3x
y=18-3x/-9
y=-2-3x/-9
y=-2-3/9x
Final answer: y=-2-1/3x
However, my answer is wrong... Can someone please guide me to what I am doing wrong?
A positive...
I see where you're going, but what's really throwing me off is that the problem before it was nearly identical ... and I ended up missing it, so it gave me this one, but not before giving me the answer that it wanted...
Here was the problem and the answer, 4x-6y=18, Final correct answer: y=-3-(2/3)x ... so with that in mind, I did the same math on the new problem, 3x-9y=18, I thought would be: y=-2-(1/3)x
