# What is the slope of the equation y = 3/4 x - 2?

Apr 9, 2015

Your slope is the numerical coefficient of $x$, in this case $\frac{3}{4}$.
This tells you that every time $x$ increases of $1$ then $y$ increases of $\frac{3}{4}$.

• We can find the Slope of a Line by expressing its equation in the Slope Intercept form .

• The Slope Intercept Form of the equation of a given line is:
$y = m x + c$
where $m$ is the Slope of that line, and $c$ is the Y intercept

$y = \frac{3}{4} x - 2$ is already in the Slope Intercept Form .

Hence the slope of the line with this equation will be color(green)(3/4
