# How do you find the slope and intercept of #3x+7=0#?

##### 2 Answers

The slope is 3 and the intercept is 7.

#### Explanation:

First off the equation should read

The values you are looking for are in the formula:

The slope is a ratio of how much

In the case of this formula,

The intercept is the value of

graph{3x+7 [-12.3, 16.17, -2.06, 12.18]}

#### Explanation:

#"subtract 7 from both sides and divide by 3 gives"#

#x=-7/3#

#"this is the equation of a vertical line parallel to the y-axis"#

#"passing through all points with an x-coordinate of "-7/3#

#"the slope is therefore undefined"#

#"the x-intercept "=-7/3" there is no y-intercept"#

graph{(y-1000x-2333)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
