# How do you fnd the slope of a line parallel to the graph of each equation y=3/8x + 19?

Jul 24, 2015

Slope of all lines parallel to $y = \frac{3}{8} x + 19$ is
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$\frac{3}{8}$

#### Explanation:

$y = \frac{3}{8} x + 19$
is an equation in slope-intercept form.

For the general case of a slope-intercept form:
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$y = m x + b$
the slope is $m$
(and the y-intercept is $b$)
