What is the slope and y-intercept of this line #y = (-4/5)x + 1#?
By plugging the value
The equation of a line in
where m represents the slope and b, the y-intercept.
The advantage to having the equation in this form, is that m and b may be extracted 'easily'.
The equation here
#y=-4/5x+1" is in this form"#
#rArr"slope" =-4/5" and y-intercept" =1#
