What is 20x - y = -40 in
slope-intercept form?

1 Answer

Answer:

y=20x+40

Step-by-step explanation:

slope-intercept form is y=mx+b. In order to place the equation into such format, you first need to move the 20x to the right, meaning you subtract it from both sides. you are left with -y=-20x-40. Since y cannot be negative or have any coefficient other than positive 1, you divide both sides by -1. -20/-1=20,, -40/-1=40,,-1/-1=1. Therefore, you are left with y=20x+40
