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 . 27 x - 36 y = 108

To determine

Express the equation 27x-36y=108 in the form y=mx+b.

Explanation

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

Subtract 27x from each side of the equation 27x-36y=108

27x-36y-27x=108-27x

27x and -27x on left hand side get cancelled.

Then,

-36y=108-27x

Rewrite the equation -36y=108-27x as

-36y=-27x+108

Now, divide -36y=-27x+108 by -36

So,
