# How do you find the slope and the y-intercept of the line, then graph the line: 3x-y=5?

Jul 29, 2016

slope $= 3$
$y$- intercept is $y = - 5$

#### Explanation:

$y = m x + c$
where $m$ is the slope
$3 x - y = 5$
or
$y = 3 x - 5$
Therefore slope $= 3$=========Ans $1$

$y$- intercept is when $x = 0$
So by putting the value of $x = 0$ in the equation $y = 3 x - 5$
we get
$y = 3 \left(0\right) - 5$
or
$y = 0 - 5$
or
$y = - 5$=========Ans $2$
