# How do you find the slope and intercept of y=-3/4x-5?

Mar 5, 2016

slope =$- \frac{3}{4}$and intercept from y-axis $= - 5$

#### Explanation:

The slope intercept form of equation of a straight line is
$y = m x + c$ , where m = slope and c = intercept from y-axis
Comparing this equation with the given one we get
slope $m = - \frac{3}{4}$ and intercept $c = - 5$
