# How do you find the slope for 2y - 7 = x?

Mar 9, 2018

The answer is $\frac{1}{2}$.

#### Explanation:

First, take any two values for $x$ and $y$ that lie on the given line

Here, let us take $\left(7 , 7\right)$ and $\left(- 1 , 3\right)$ (These values lie on the line of in the equation).

Now apply the formula of the slope that is

$\text{slope} = \frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$

and we get the answer $\frac{1}{2}$.

$\text{slope} = \frac{3 - 7}{- 1 - 7} = \frac{1}{2}$
