# How do you calculate the slope, x intercept, and y intercept of the following equation: x + 4y = 4?

see below

#### Explanation:

We have, $x + 4 y = 4$
Re-arranging the terms,we get,
$y = - \frac{1}{4} \times x + 1$
Comparing this to the general equation of the form $y = m x + c$ where $c$ indicates the $y - \text{intercept}$ and $m$ the slope,we get,
$m$=slope =$- \frac{1}{4}$ and $c$=y-intercept=1

If you put in $y$=0 in the main equation,you get $x$=4.
