# How do you find the slope and intercept of 3x+4y-16=0?

Jan 21, 2016

I found: $m = - \frac{3}{4}$

#### Explanation:

You can try to write it in Slope-Intercept form:
$y = m x + c$
where $m$ will be the slope.

We isolate $y$ on one side:
$4 y = - 3 x + 16$
$y = - \frac{3}{4} x + 4$
so that the slope will be $m = - \frac{3}{4}$
