# What is the slope of line y=300-50x?

Nov 5, 2016

Slope of the line is $- 50.$

#### Explanation:

The standard slope-intercept form of equation of a straight line is represented by : $y = m x + c .$ ....(i)

Here, $c$ represents the y-intercept & $m$ the slope of the line.

Now, given equation is $y = 300 - 50 x .$ ....(ii)
$\therefore$ Comparing equations (i) & (ii),
y=(-50 )x+300.

$\therefore m = - 50 , c = 300.$
Therefore, slope of the line is $- 50.$ (answer).
