Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the slope is undefined since it can be written in this form: x=a

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0write in y=mx+b from and whatever your coeifficent of x is is your slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Solve for y: First you should subtract 3x on both sides giving you: 4y=3x+7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now divide both sides by 4 giving you: y= 3x/(4)+7/(4)=3x/47/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so since m=3/4 and m represents your slope then the slope is 3/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can just divide the equation by the coefficient in front of the y. Then the coefficient in front of x will be the slope.
