# What is the slope and intercept for y=3x-1 and how would you graph it?

Oct 5, 2015

Slope: $3$
Intercept: $- 1$
The coefficient of $x$ in your equation is always your slope, so your slope is $3$.
From the equation you would also know that any number behind the $x$ is always your intercept, so your intercept is $- 1$
