#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"rearrange "3x-y=4" into this form"#

#"subtract 3x from both sides"#

#cancel(3x)cancel(-3x)-y=-3x+4#

#rArr-y=-3x+4#

#"multiply through by "-1#

#rArry=3x-4larrcolor(blue)"in slope-intercept form"#

#"with slope m "=3#
