How do you find the slope and intercept of 3/2x+y=-5?

Jan 10, 2016

slope = $- \frac{3}{2}$ , y-intercept = -5

Explanation:

One of the forms of the equation of a straight line is y = mx + c

where m represents the slope and c the y-intercept.

rearranging the given equation into this form : $y = - \frac{3}{2} x - 5$

comparing the two equations we get that m = $- \frac{3}{2}$ and y-intercept is -5.
