# What is the slope and y-intercept of this line -6x-4y=1?

Aug 15, 2016

The slope, $m = - \frac{3}{2}$ and the y-intercept,$c = - \frac{1}{4}$

#### Explanation:

Change the equation into the form $y = m x + c$

$- 6 x - 1 = 4 y$

$y = - \frac{6}{4} x - \frac{1}{4}$

$y = - \frac{3}{2} x - \frac{1}{4}$

$y = m x + c$

The slope = -3/2 and the y-intercept = -1/4
