# How do you write the slope-intercept equation for the line with slope -2/7 and y-intercept (0,4)?

Apr 20, 2017

$y = - \frac{2}{7} x + 4$

#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{slope-intercept form}}$ is.

$\textcolor{red}{\overline{\underline{| \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} \textcolor{b l a c k}{y = m x + b} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} |}}}$
where m represents the slope and b, the y-intercept.

$\text{here " m=-2/7" and } b = 4$

$\Rightarrow y = - \frac{2}{7} x + 4 \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{ in slope-intercept form}}$
