# How do you find the slope of a line 2y = 8x − 3?

May 13, 2018

The slope of the line is $4$.

#### Explanation:

To find the slope of a line, we first need to make $y$ alone.

To do so, divide both sides by $\textcolor{b l u e}{2}$:
$\frac{2 y}{\textcolor{b l u e}{2}} = \frac{8 x - 3}{\textcolor{b l u e}{2}}$

$y = \frac{8 x}{2} - \frac{3}{2}$

$y = 4 x - \frac{3}{2}$

The slope is the coefficient on the $x$, meaning the slope is $4$.

Hope this helps!
