# What is the slope and y-intercept of the line y = -7/4 x +2?

Jul 15, 2015

Slope = -7/4
y-intercept = 2

#### Explanation:

Any equation in the form:
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$y = m x + b$
is in slope-intercept form with
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$slope $= m$
and
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$y-intercept $= b$

$y = \left(- \frac{7}{4}\right) x + 2$ is in this form.
