In Exercises 1 to 4, use division to write an equation of the form A x + B y = C that is equivalent to the one provided. Then write the given equation in the form y = m x + b . 15 x - 35 y = 105

To determine

Express the equation 15x-35y=105 in the form y=mx+b.

Explanation

The given equation is expressed in the standard form as given below.

Subtract 15x from each side of the equation 15x-35y=105

15x-35y-15x=105-15x

15x and -15x on left hand side get cancelled.

-35y=105-15x

Rewrite the equation -35y=105-15x as

-35y=-15x+105

Now, divide -35y=-15x+105 by -35

So,

-35<
