# How do you find the slope and y-intercept for the graph of the equation: 12x - 4y = 96?

May 24, 2018

$s l o p e = 3$
y-intercept$= - 24$

#### Explanation:

$s l o p e = - \frac{a}{b}$

$s l o p e = \frac{- 12}{-} 4$

$s l o p e = 3$

For y-intercept put $x = 0$,

$- 4 y = 96$

y-intercept$= - 24$
