# [slope and y intercepts] y=1/4x-3?

i dont know. it says “Find the slope and y-intercept of the graph of the equation”. What on earth is that supposed to mean? I dont even know how to start

remember the formula: y = mx + b

m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. So if your equation is y = 1/4x – 3, then your m is 1/4 and your b is -3. So, 1/4 is the slope and -3 is the y-intercept.

Hope that helps!

every straight line can be represented by an equation: y = mx + b. The coordinates of every point on the line will solve the equation if you substitute them in the equation for x and y.

The slope m of this line – its steepness, or slant – can be calculated like this:

m = change in y-value

change in x-value

The equation of any straight line, called a linear equation, can be written as: y = mx + b, where m is the slope of the line and b is the y-intercept.

The y-intercept of this line is the value of y at the point where the line crosses the y axis

or if this isn’t helping or confusing go to math.com

you have right here an equation of a line. The slope = a million/4 so upward push/run. upward push = a million run = 4 The y-intercept is -3. Graph -3 on the y-intercept and then from that element proceed upwards a million and then over 4. proceed till you have a minimum of three factors for a at as quickly as line graph.

k. Once you get this one its realllly easy. The answers right in front of you.

in the form y = mx+b, m is always the slope, and b is always the y intercept..

In your question, the slope (m) is 1/4, and the y intercept (b) is -3

See, slope is what comes right before x, and right after x is the y intercept. This should always be true in the level of math you’re doing.. (comp 7/8? algebra I?)

slope: 1/4

y-intercept: -3
