I just have a little question...
What happens when the inequality is like follows: x>11 + y? How do we rewrite the equation so that y is in front?
Karin from Algebra Class Says:
If you want to rewrite, x > 11 + y in slope intercept form, you must move the terms around using opposite operations. Take a look...
Step 1: Move 11 to the left hand side by subtracting 11 from both sides.
x - 11 > 11 - 11 + y
x - 11 > y
Now you have y by itself on the right hand side, but you might be most comfortable with the y on the left hand side. If this is the case, you can flip sides of the inequality, but you must also reverse the inequality symbol.
y < x - 11
Now the inequality is in slope intercept form.
I hope this helps,
