    Algebra basic question.

    3y=1x

    I read this as 3y's and 1x are equal?


    x/y=3/1, when x = 3 then y = 1?

    yes

    but for graphing purposes and just in general we would rearrange this to y= x/3

    x/y=3/1, when x = 3 then y = 1?
    what that means is the x/y = 3 so basically any value of x/y that gives 3
    and those values can be
    x=6 and y=2
    or x=3 and y=1
