# How do you find the slope and y-intercept for the line 3x - 5y = 4?

Sep 24, 2015

I found:
Slope$= \frac{3}{5}$;
Y-intercept$= - \frac{4}{5}$

#### Explanation:

You can first write your equation in Slope-Intercept Form, $\textcolor{red}{y = m x + c}$, by isolating $y$ on one side:
$y = \frac{3}{5} x - \frac{4}{5}$
Slope$= m = \frac{3}{5}$;
Y-intercept$= c = - \frac{4}{5}$
