# How do you find slope and y-intercept of (3/5)x-7=y?

May 22, 2016

Slope $\to \frac{3}{5}$

y-intercept $\to - 7$

#### Explanation:

Standard form for straight line graph is:$\text{ } y = m x + c$

Where $m$ is the gradient (slope) and $c$ is the y intercept

$m = \frac{3}{5} \to \text{Slope}$

$c = - 7 \to \text{y-intercept}$

$\text{slope=} \frac{3}{5}$
$y = - 7$

#### Explanation:

$\textcolor{red}{\frac{3}{5}} x - 7 = y$

$\text{slope is the coefficient of 'x'}$

$\text{slope=} \frac{3}{5}$

$\text{for y intercept ,we write x=0}$

$\frac{3}{5} \cdot 0 - 7 = y$

$y = - 7$
