what would the slope be for the equation 4x - 3y = 12?
first put it in the form of y=mx+b -3y=-4x+12 y=4/3x -4 the slope is m which is 4/3
so move to the side 4 and up 3?
move up4 and over 3
Recall that the line has a positive slope so using rise over run you move in the positive direction. Also remember to read the graph from left to right. http://www.google.com/imgres?q=positive+and+negative+slope&um=1&hl=en&sa=N&biw=1280&bih=705&tbm=isch&tbnid=vei9nDU-nUKpCM:&imgrefurl=http://www.mathexpression.com/negative-slope-question.html&docid=EqOvWzSdJleuMM&imgurl=http://www.mathexpression.com/image-files/c17q1-slope.png&w=300&h=299&ei=ItvwTuyGIsbq0QGl2_SQAg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=194&vpy=144&dur=8318&hovh=224&hovw=225&tx=137&ty=96&sig=112547809144202361250&page=1&tbnh=158&tbnw=159&start=0&ndsp=17&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0
