How do I answer this equation? -3x+y=12. I'm supposed to find the function for it bt I don't know how. Can you guys help me out please

Accepted Solution

Typically when being asked for a function, they want it written in slope intercept form. To find that, you need to solve for y.

You can do this by adding 3x to both sides which would result in y = 3x + 12.

Also, math teachers typically want functions expressed in terms of f(x) instead of y. So, you can replace your y with that to get the final answer of f(x) = 3x + 12.
