# How do you find the slope and intercept of #-4x+2y=12#?

##### 1 Answer

Slope:

y-intercept:

(x-intercept:

#### Explanation:

**slope**

Given an equation in the form

So

Alternately, we could convert the given form

into "slope-intercept form":

**y-intercept**

If we used the "slope-intercept form" (above) we already have the y-intercept:

otherwise we can determine the y-intercept by finding the value of

**x-intercept** (note sometimes when "the intercept" is asked for, what is meant is only the y-intercept)

The x-intercept can be determined by find the value of
