How do you find the slope and intercept of #8x + 4y = -96#?
Dividing both sides by 4 we have
Comparing this with slope imtercept form
Slope=-2 and y-intercept
x-intercept can be had by putting y=0 in the equation
We can see that 4 is a factor common to all the terms in the given equation.
Divide both sides by 4:
This can also be written as
First, we will find the slope
The equation of a line is of the form
Next, we find the intercepts
We have already found the
Here is a step-by-step to work out the
