# How do you write 4x - y-7 =0  in slope intercept form?

Sep 29, 2015

The answer is $y = 4 x - 7$ .

#### Explanation:

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is $y = m x + b$, where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y-intercept.

In order to convert $4 x - y - 7 = 0$ into slope-intercept form, solve for $y$.

$4 x - y - 7 = 0$

Subtract $4 x$ from both sides of the equation.

$- y - 7 = - 4 x$

Add $7$ to both sides.

$- y = - 4 x + 7$

Multiply both sides by $- 1$.

$y = 4 x - 7$
