# How do you find the slope and y intercept for 9x - 2y = -1?

Sep 29, 2015

$m = \frac{9}{2}$
Y Intercept $= \frac{1}{2}$

#### Explanation:

The given equation is in the general form $a x + b y + c = 0$
Solve it to slope intercept form
$- 2 y = - 1 - 9 x$
$y = \frac{- 1}{- 2} - \frac{9}{- 2} x$
$y = \frac{1}{2} + \frac{9}{2} x$

The co-efficient of $x$ is slope of the curve $m = \frac{9}{2}$
The constant term $\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)$ is Y-intercept
