Answer:

transform the equation into the y intercept form
# y =mx +b# the m will be the slope and the b the y intercept.

Explanation:

# 3/4x -y = 4# subtract #3/4 x# from both sides.

# 3/4x - 3/4x -y = -3/4 x + 4 # this gives

# -y = - 3/4x + 4# divide both sides by -1#

# (-1y)/-1 = (-3/4x)/-1 + 4/-1# This results in

# y = 3/4 x + -4 #

The m ( mountain ski slope) or slope is 3/4

The b ( the beginning) the y intercept is -4
