I need some help solving this question:

Rearrange 9x-10y=4 into the form of y=mx+c What is the gradient and the intercept?

Bring the x to other side.
Divide by something to get y on its own

So here's a few hints;

Get y on it's own if it isn't already (make the coefficient 1).
X will be the gradient (of course)
C will be an integer (we can assume almost always)

9x (X) - 10y (<- Y) = 4 (<- C)

First let's rearrange:

10y = 9x -4

Then get the y value on it's own so devide the equation by 10:

y = 9/10(x) - 4/10

Gradient = 9/10
Intercept = -4/10

Any questions, feel free to ask.
