## anonymous 4 years ago How do I find the slope of 12x + 4y = 24 ?

1. anonymous

y=mx+b

2. anonymous

4y = 12x + 24

3. anonymous

4/4y = 12/4 + 24/4

4. anonymous

y=3x + 6

had trouble with these kinds of problems to so thats all the steps I know

Thankss .

No problem, I had these kinds of homework problems last night and I didn't know the rest of the steps, just how to simplify it.

I got confused ! &- I still am .

A line has a slope of m = 12 , and the point ( -2, 8 ) lies on the line . What is the equation of the line ?

you can also use the fact that the slope of $ax+by=c$ is $-\frac{a}{b}$
