Rewrite equation in slope intercept form 5x-2y-70?
September 13, 2008 2:21AM
5x - 2y - 70 is not an equation and therefore cannot be converted. However, the equation 5x - 2y = 70 converts to slope intercept form the following way: 5x - 2y = 70 = -2y = -5x + 70 = -2y/-2 = -5x/-2 + 70/-2 = y = 5/2 x + (-35) = y = 5/2 x - 35 slope: 5/2 y-intercept: -35 ---- the above answer is wrong due wikianswer's punctuation limit. Which does not allow the "="
The problem is 5x-2y=70
here's how to rewrite the equation.
5x-2y=70 subtract 5x from both side.
2y=70-5x divide both side by 2
