# How do you find the slope and intercept to graph y=3x -1?

Jun 14, 2018

$\text{slope} = 3$

$\text{intercept} = - 1$

#### Explanation:

Given;

$y = 3 x - 1$

Now to simply find the slope and intercept of the equation you have to compare it with the standard equation of a line which is;

$y = m x + c$

Comparing both equations;

$y = m x + c \Rightarrow y = 3 x - 1$

$\text{slope} \Rightarrow m = 3$

$\text{intercept} \Rightarrow c = - 1$
