How do you find the slope and y intercept of #4x+y=-6#?
slope = - 4 , y-intercept = - 6
One form of the equation of a straight line is y = mx + c where m
represents the gradient (slope ) of the line and c the y-intercept.
rearranging the equation 4x + y = - 6 gives : y = - 4x - 6
and by comparing the 2 equations we get m = - 4 and
y-intercept = - 6
