How do you turn -4x+2y=2 into slope-intercept form?

i have to find the slope of this equation but i don't know how to because its not in slope-intercept form. :(

You would first add -4x to both sides, thus canceling out the -4x on the left side of the equation, leaving you with 2y= -4x + 2. Then, you divide the 2, the 2 that is attached to the y, canceling that 2 out, and leaving you with y= -2x + 1.

Sorry but this is wrong.

Oh yeah, it's y= 2x + 1.

2y=-4x+2

you forgot to divide 2 and it's positive 4x not negative

use a calculator to much work wait i know subtract 2y from +2y and from 2 then you get -4 =y and then i dont know

I can attest that this is an amazing website although I prefer their physics.

Slope-intercept form: y = mx + b
-4x + 2y = 2
+4x. +4x
2y = 4x + 2
/2. /2
y = 2x + 1 ANSWER
