# How do you find the slope and intercept of y = (9/7)x + 8?

May 10, 2016

$s l o p e = G r a \mathrm{di} e n t = \left(\frac{9}{7}\right)$
y-intercepts = 8
x- intercept = $\frac{56}{9}$

#### Explanation:

The linear function is given in the form:

$y = m x + c$
where m is the slope/gradient, c is the y intercept.

Hence
$s l o p e = G r a \mathrm{di} e n t = \left(\frac{9}{7}\right)$
y-intercepts = 8

To find the x-intercept, let y = 0,
y= $\frac{9}{7}$x + 8
0 = $\frac{9}{7}$x + 8
x = $\frac{\left(- 8\right) \cdot 7}{9}$
x= $\frac{56}{9}$
