# How do you find the slope and intercept of f(x)=-5x-4?

Jun 17, 2018

$m = - 5 \mathmr{and} c = - 4$

#### Explanation:

$f \left(x\right) = - 5 x - 4$ is the same as $y = - 5 x - 4$ which is the equation of a straight line in slope-intercept form $\left(y = m x + c\right)$

$y = - 5 x - 4$

The values can be read off directly from the equation.

The slope: $m = - 5$

$c = - 4$
