How do you find the slope for 2x + 4y = 8?
Divide both sides by 4 so that there is no number (coefficient) in front of
But the x term is on the same side as the y term so
Divide both sides by 4
Now your equation is in standard form of
If we rearrange the function to what is referred to as Gradient Form we can determine the slope (the gradient) of the function.
Gradient form can be defined as:
Therefore, if we rearrange the function you have given into Gradient Form :
Therefore, when rearranged into Gradient Form we can see that the coefficient of
