# How do you find the slope of 3x-y=0?

Aug 8, 2015

slope is $3$

#### Explanation:

We can put this linear equation into slope intercept form to find the slope :)

$y = m x + b$, where

$m$ - the slope

to do this, we want to get positive "y" all alone on one side
so add "y" to both sides of the given equation

$3 x - y = 0$

becomes

$3 x = y$

$y = 3 x + 0$

compared to

$y = m x + b$

$m = 3$, therefore the slope is equal to $3$
