How do you find the slope and intercept of #x-y=1#?
See a solution process below.
This equation is in Standard Linear form. The standard form of a linear equation is:
Where, if at all possible,
The slope of an equation in standard form is:
The slope is:
#m = (-color(red)(1))/color(blue)(-1) = 1#
#y#-intercept is: #color(green)(1)/color(blue)(-1) = -1#or #(0, -1)#
Given equation of straight line is
The above equation is in standard intercept form of line:
The given equation of line:
Recall slope-intercept form
We essentially just want a
Next, divide both sides by
Now, our equation is in slope-intercept form, with a slope of
