No, but like tkhunny wrote, you are close. Remember, the form y=mx+b has a + between the mx and b. You should rewrite the equation so that there is a + between the mx and b, before reading off the value of b. We have:Dominic said:I think it's m is -2/3 and b is 4?
Depends on what you're trying to do. In this problem, we're not evaluating anything, so we don't evaluate anything in parentheses first. If you had a value for x, and you plugged it into (-2/3)x - 4 and wanted to evaluate that, then you would evaluate what's in parentheses first.so, would you do the parenthese first?
