Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Juan, a student:

Hi my name is Juan.
I'm a student in 9th grade and my teacher gave me an algebra problem that I couldn't resolve....
I was wondering if you could help me with this problem.

This is the question:

The general "Standard" form of an equation is Ax+By=C.
Re-Write this equation in slope-intercept (y=mx+b) form.

Hi Juan,

Try this problem.

3x + 5y = 2
Re-Write this equation in slope-intercept (y=mx+b) form.

After you have done this try to repeat the steps using the equation Ax + By = C.

Write back if you have difficulty,
