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

Feb 24, 2016

The slope is $\frac{4}{1}$
The intercept is 0

#### Explanation:

The slope intercept form of a linear equation is $y = m x + b$
where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y intercept.

For the equation $y = 4 x$ or $y = 4 x + 0$
the $m = 4$ and the $b = 0$

Remember that the slope is the rise over the run $\frac{r i s e}{r u n}$ and therefore the slope for this equation would be $\frac{4}{1}$.
