Distribute the

#### Explanation:

Remember, slope-intercept form is represented as y=mx+b

Start on the right side of the equation, and distribute the

Now we have the equation **add #1# to both sides** of the equation so that the variable y is the only thing on the left side of the equation.

On the left hand side, the **, leaving the variable #y#. On the right hand side, **add

We have obtained an equation in *slope intercept form (y=mx+b),* where
