# How do you find the slope and intercept to graph 2x + y = 4?

Apr 4, 2018

intercept on x-axis = 2
intercept on y-axis = 4
$m = - 2$

#### Explanation:

$2 x + y = 4$
$\frac{2 x}{4} + \frac{y}{4} = 1$
$\frac{x}{2} + \frac{y}{4} = 1$
intercept on x-axis = 2
intercept on y-axis = 4
$2 x + y = 4$
$y = 4 - 2 x$
$y = - 2 x + 4$
so, $m = - 2 = s l o p e$
