How do you find the slope given #y + 4x = 5#?
standard form is
-4 is the slope & 5 the y-intercept.
The standardised equation for a straight line graph is:
As the value of
The slope (proper name is gradient ) is
If m is negative then it is a downward slop. If m is positive then it is an upwards slop.
Converting this equation to standard form
This means for 1 along the x-axis y goes down by 4
