# How do you find the slope and intercept of 3x+4y=16?

Jan 3, 2016

slope is : $- \frac{3}{4}$

intercept is : 4

#### Explanation:

First convert the given equation in the slope intercept form of a straight line. That is, y=mx+c.
From this slope interecpt form, you have :
m : is the slope of the line
c : is the y- interecept
For your question you have 3x + 4y = 16, coverting thge equation you have : y = $- \frac{3}{4}$x + 4. here, m= $- \frac{3}{4}$ and c= 4.
