# How do you change 3x+6y = 12 into slope intercept form?

Apr 27, 2018

$y = - \frac{1}{2} x + 2$

#### Explanation:

Rearrange the equation to make y the subject

Subtract 3x from both sides

$6 y = - 3 x + 12$

Divide both sides by 6

$y = - \frac{3}{6} x + \frac{12}{6}$

$y = - \frac{1}{2} x + 2$
