## Homework Statement

Write the equation 4

*x*– 7

*y*– 14 = 0 in the form

*y*=

*mx*+

*b*.

## Homework Equations

"Y= mx + b" and "standard form".

## The Attempt at a Solution

4

*x*– 7

*y*– 14 = 0 (add 14 to both sides of the equation)

4

*x*– 7

*y*= 14 (subtract 4x from both sides of the equation)

-7

*y*= -4x + 14 (divide both sides of the equation by -7)

*y*= -4x/-7 + 14/-7

y = 4/7x + (-2)

so the slope (m) is 4/7 and the initial value (b) is -2

Is this the correct way to answer this question. thanks for your time to help me :)
