6-12.

Juan thinks that the graph of 6

*y*+ 12*x*= 4 is a line. Homework Help ✎Solve Juan's equation for

*y*.Is this equation

**linear**? That is, is its graph a line? Explain how you know.What are the growth factor and

*y*-intercept of this graph?

Get *y* by itself by subtracting 12*x* from both sides.

6*y* + 12*x* = 4

−12*x* −12*x*

6*y* = 4 − 12*x*

Can it be written in the form *y = mx + b*?

What is *m* in this equation? What is *b*?
