Rewrite the following equation so that y is a function of x:3x + 18y = 36
Show how you got the answer.....

Report as

Okay so obviously you have to solve the equation for y, to get f(x).
So by doing that just distribute "3x" to the other side of the equation.
Then divide it all by 18.
And Ill leave it there to let you figure the rest out. ;)

im just in middle school

try getting Y by itself

Report as

3X=-18y of course

Report as
There's no "of course" to it.
Report as

3x + 18y = 36
To make y a function of x, solve for y.
3x + 18y = 36
-3x. -3x
18y = -3x + 36
/18. /18
y = -3x/18 + 36/18
y = (-1/6)x + 2. ANSWER
