How do I set up this equation in y=mx+b form? Please explain how to set up this equation in y=mx+b form... y=(2-a)x+a  

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

y= (2-a)x + a

The equation is already in the slope for such that the slope m= (2-a) and b= a

==> To rewrite in b terms:

==> a= b

==> m= 2-a

==> m= 2- b

==> y= (2-b)x + b such that the slope m= (2-b).
