What is the slope and intercept of the following linear equation:
5(x+3y) - 3x + 2(5-y) = 15
Ok, so we have:
We must completely expand it and resimplify:
First, we distribute:
Then we combine like terms:
Then we move the constant over:
Now, we isolate y:
This is in slope-intercept form, so we can derive the following from it:
There you go.
