# How do you find the slope and intercept of  y=3x+1?

May 24, 2016

$\text{slope=3 ; y intercept=1 ; x intercept=} - \frac{1}{3}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{The coefficient of term 'x' gives slope of line}$

$s l o p e = 3$

$\text{for y intercept; we write x=0 }$

$y = 3 \cdot 0 + 1 \text{ } y = 1$

$\text{for x intercept; we write y=0}$

$0 = 3 x + 1 \text{ "3x=-1" } x = - \frac{1}{3}$
