How do you find the slope and intercept of #7y=x-10#?
The equation of a line in
where m represents the slope and b, the y-intercept.
The advantage to having the line in this form is that m and b may be extracted 'easily'.
The equation 7y = x - 10 is almost in that form. Dividing both sides by 7 will complete the equation in slope-intercept form.
#rArr" slope" =1/7" and y-intercept" =-10/7#
