# How do you find the slope and y intercept for 4y=12-5x?

Sep 15, 2015

I found:
slope$= - \frac{5}{4}$
y-intercept$= 3$

#### Explanation:

You can manipulate your equation to change it into Slope-Intercept form or:
$y = m x + c$
where:
$m =$slope;
$c =$y-intercept.
To do this you need to isolate $y$ on the left as:
$y = \frac{12}{4} - \frac{5}{4} x$
or:
$y = - \frac{5}{4} x + 3 = m x + c$
you'll then get:
$m =$slope$= - \frac{5}{4}$
$c =$y-intercept$= 3$
