3y+2=17

The slope-intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

y=mx+b

Move all terms not containing y to the right side of the equation.

Subtract 2 from both sides of the equation.

3y=17-2

Subtract 2 from 17.

3y=15

3y=15

Divide each term by 3 and simplify.

Divide each term in 3y=15 by 3.

3y3=153

Cancel the common factor.

3y3=153

Divide y by 1.

y=153

y=153

Divide 15 by 3.

y=5

y=5

y=5
