# How do you find the slope and intercept to graph y= -4x-9?

May 24, 2018

$\text{slope "=-4," y-intercept } = - 9$

#### Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{where m is the slope and b the y-intercept}$

$y = - 4 x - 9 \text{ is in this form}$

$\text{with slope "=-4" and y-intercept } = - 9$
