# How do you find slope and intercepts to graph 4x+3y=-3?

Jan 8, 2016

Slope $= \frac{- 4}{3}$

Y-Intercept $= - 1$

#### Explanation:

The given equation is in the form -

$a x + b y = c$

To find its slope use the formula

$m = \frac{- a}{b} = \frac{- 4}{3}$

To find its intercept , put $x = 0$

At x=0; 4(0)+3y =-3

$3 y = - 3$
$y = \frac{- 3}{3} = - 1$

Slope $= \frac{- 4}{3}$

Y-Intercept $= - 1$
