What is the slope of a line represented by the equation y = (5/4)x - 1? Algebra Graphs of Linear Equations and Functions Slope-Intercept Form 1 Answer BRIAN M. Jul 9, 2016 Answer: The slope would be # m=5/4 # Explanation: The slope-intercept formula of a line is represented by the equation #y = mx + b# In this equation the #m=# the slope and the #b=# the y-intercept Therefore, for the equation given #y = 5/4 x - 1# The slope would be # m=5/4 # Related questions What is Slope-Intercept Form?
