What is the slope of y=3x?
The formula to calculate slope is
Therefore, create a table of values for x and y to determine its points on a graph.
Two values that you should get would be (0,0) and (1,3).
Substitute the values in the equation above to obtain the slope of 3.
In order to find the slope of given equation, compare it with slope intercept form of an equation.
The slope intercept form of an equation is given by;
m = slope and c = y-intercept
Now we have;
Compare equation 1 and 2, we get
m = 3 and c = 0
Hence, the slope of given equation is 3.
