# How do you find the slope of y-3x=1?

Jul 19, 2018

The slope is $3$.

#### Explanation:

To find the slope, first make the equation in slope-intercept form (shown below) so that we can find the slope easier:

Let's make $y$ by itself by adding $\textcolor{b l u e}{3 x}$ to both sides of the equation:
$y - 3 x \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{+ \quad 3 x} = 1 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{+ \quad 3 x}$

$y = 1 + 3 x$

We know that the slope is the number multiplied by the $x$, so the slope is $3$.

Hope this helps!
