How do you find the slope and y intercept for: x-y =4?

Oct 18, 2015

$m = 1$

$b = - 4$

Explanation:

First, change the form of $x - y = 4$ into $y = m x + b$

$- y = - x + 4$

$y = x - 4$

$m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y-intercept.

it is understandable that the $x$ has a coefficient of 1, so the $m$ is $1$. and the y-intercept($b$) is $- 4$.
