# How do you find the slope of y=3/8x + 19?

Mar 15, 2018

$\frac{3}{8}$

#### Explanation:

Using the equation $y = m x + b$, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept, we just need to look for m in the equation. M is the coefficient of x, which in this case is $\frac{3}{8}$

$\text{slope } = \frac{3}{8}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{where m is the slope and b the y-intercept}$

$y = \frac{3}{8} x + 19 \text{ is in this form}$

$\Rightarrow \text{slope m } = \frac{3}{8}$
