# How do you find the slope and intercept to graph y = (5/4)x - 1?

Jan 31, 2016

Slope $m = \frac{5}{4}$
Y-intercept $= - 1$

#### Explanation:

Given -

$y = \frac{5}{4} x - 1$
The given equation is in the slope intercept form.
$y = m x + c$
where -
co-efficient of $x$ is slope.
constant term is y- intercept

Apply this in the given problem-

Slope $m = \frac{5}{4}$
Y-intercept $= - 1$
