hope this will end up in right place, new here...anyway I am confused by slope intercept form as in 3y=4x+6...what steps do i take to convert to y=mx+b? and how do i end up with 2 as b as in 4/3x+2? where did the 2 come from? thank you.

if u had 3x=4+6 u could start solving by div. by 3: 3x/3=4/3+6/3 so x=4/3+2
do the same thing here
(they show it here) :mrgreen:
