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

Apr 17, 2018

I would assume you want the y-intercept as well as X

#### Explanation:

You have the equation in the slope-intercept form already;
y=mx+b
with -3 being your slope and 4 being your y-intercept.

Your x-intercept would be $- \frac{4}{3}$ once you set y=0

$\text{slope" = -3; " y-intercept} = \left(0 , 4\right)$

#### Explanation:

Given: $y = - 3 x + 4$

The given line is in the slope-intercept form: $y = m x + b$,

where $m = \text{slope"; " y-intercept} = \left(0 , b\right)$

$\text{slope" = -3; " y-intercept} = \left(0 , 4\right)$
