# How do you find the slope and intercept of 3/4x - y = 4?

Mar 19, 2018

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

#### Explanation:

$\frac{3}{4} x - y = 4$ subtract $\frac{3}{4} x$ from both sides.

$\frac{3}{4} x - \frac{3}{4} x - y = - \frac{3}{4} x + 4$ this gives

$- y = - \frac{3}{4} x + 4$ divide both sides by -1#

$\frac{- 1 y}{-} 1 = \frac{- \frac{3}{4} x}{-} 1 + \frac{4}{-} 1$ This results in

$y = \frac{3}{4} x + - 4$

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

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