#### Explanation:

The equation of the line in slope-intercept form is

y = mx + cRearrange 4x - 9y = - 36 into this form.

hence : -9y = - 4x - 36

multiply through by -1 : 9y = 4x + 36

now divide both sides by 9.

# rArr cancel(9 y)/cancel(9) = 4/9 x + 36/9 #

#rArr y = 4/9 x + 4 " is in slope-intercept form " #
