# How do you change #y - -1/4 = -3(x + 1/4)# into slope intercept form?

##### 3 Answers

#### Explanation:

This is slope-intercept form:

First, simplify:

Now subtract

This now matches slope-intercept form,

Hope this helps!

#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"distribute and rearrange"#

#y+1/4=-3x-3/4#

#"subtract "1/4" from both sides"#

#y=-3x-3/4-1/4#

#y=-3x-1larrcolor(red)"in slope-intercept form"#

#### Explanation:

Recall that slope intercept form is given by

We can start by distributing the

Next, let's subtract

This equation is now in slope-intercept form.
