# How do you find the slope and y intercept of x+4y=12?

Mar 2, 2018

$y = - \frac{1}{4} x + 3$

#### Explanation:

$x + 4 y = 12$

Subtract $x$ from both sides so that it is

$4 y = - x + 12$

Divide both sides by four because there cannot be any numbers on the side that has $y$,

$y = - \frac{1}{4} x + 3$
