# How do you find the slope of y=4x?

Jul 26, 2015

Slope (m) = 4

#### Explanation:

In order to find the slope of given equation, compare it with slope intercept form of an equation.

The slope intercept form of an equation is given by;

$y = m x + c$ .......equation 1.
where,
m = slope and c = y-intercept

Now we have;
$y = 4 x$...........equation 2

Compare equation 1 and 2, we get
m = 4 and c = 0

Hence, the slope of given equation is $4$.
