# What is the slope of a line represented by the equation y = (5/4)x - 1?

Jul 9, 2016

The slope would be $m = \frac{5}{4}$

#### Explanation:

The slope-intercept formula of a line is represented by the equation

$y = m x + b$

In this equation the $m =$ the slope and the $b =$ the y-intercept

Therefore, for the equation given

$y = \frac{5}{4} x - 1$

The slope would be $m = \frac{5}{4}$
