# What is the slope of the line #y-4 = 1/4(x+2)#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

The equation of the line in slope-intercept form is

#y=mx+b#

Arrange your equation to match that form

#y - 4 = 1/4 x + 1/2#

#y=1/4x+1/2 + 4#

#y = 1/4x + 9/2#

Compare this with the slope-intercept form to get

#"slope" = m = 1/4#
