# How do you find the slope and y intercept for y=(-3/5)+(3/5)x?

Jun 17, 2015

Slope $= \frac{3}{5}$; y intercept $= \left(- \frac{3}{5}\right)$
The standard slope intercept form is $y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$ where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and $\textcolor{b l u e}{b}$ is the y intercept.
$y = \left(- \frac{3}{5}\right) + \left(\frac{3}{5}\right) x$
$\Rightarrow$$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$y = \textcolor{red}{\left(\frac{3}{5}\right)} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{\left(- \frac{3}{5}\right)}$
