# What is the slope of the line given by the equation y = 3x?

Feb 13, 2017

slope/gradient$= 3$

#### Explanation:

for any straight line graph the eqn can be written as;

$y = m x + c$

where $\text{ } m =$the gradient, or slope

& $\text{ } c =$the y-intercept

in this case:

$y = 3 x$

cmp

$y = m x + c$

$m = 3$
