# How do you find the slope and y intercept for #y + 4 = 2x#?

##### 2 Answers

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

We need to transform the equation in the form:

where

slope=

and

Therefore:

graph{2x-4 [-3.862, 6.004, -4.428, 0.506]}

#### Answer:

Same thing just, presented a bit differently!

#### Explanation:

Given:

You could transform this into the standard format of

'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The y-intercept is when

So we write the equation as:

But

Subtract

But

'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The slope (gradient) is the number in front of
