Change the equation to the form of

#### Explanation:

We're changing the form of the equation from point-slope to slope-intercept. To do this, first solve for y:

Next we're going to change the format of the right side of the equation so that it has the form of

Since there is only the one x term,

And that's the answer in the format of
