# What is the slope intercept form of the line with a slope of 3/4  and y-intercept of  -5 ?

Apr 15, 2016

$y = \frac{3}{4} x - 5$

#### Explanation:

The slope-intercept form of a line is y = mx + c

where m represents the gradient ( slope) of the line and c , the y-intercept.

here m = $\frac{3}{4} \text{ and c = -5 }$

substituting these values into y = mx + c , to obtain equation.

$\Rightarrow y = \frac{3}{4} x - 5 \text{ is the equation }$
