## unheard 2 years ago Can someone help me find the slope and y intercept please? I'd really appreciate it. y= -1/3x + 3 -x + 3y = 9

1. mathstudent55

The slope-intercept form of the equation of a line is y = mx + b where m = slope, and b = y-intercept

2. shaik0124

slope is-1/3 n y intercept is 3

3. ash2326

Standard form of a line with slope m and y-intercept c $y=mx+c$ Let's compare this with the first equation $y=-\frac 1 3 x+3$ Do you see any correspondence between the two equations? @unheard

4. unheard

Kind of, @ash2326 I'm honestly terrible at slope.

5. ash2326

@shaik0124 Please don't give just answers, it won't help the user. Please explain how you got it

6. shaik0124

just compare two equations where m is slope and c is y intrcpt

7. shaik0124

ok aishwarya2326

8. unheard

I think I understand the comparing the equations.

9. shaik0124

good now corelate both n find values

10. unheard

I don't understand that o.o

11. ash2326

$y=mx+c$ $y=-\frac 13 x+3$ if in the first equation, we put m=-1/3 and c=3 We'll get the second one, won't we?

12. unheard

Yes. @ash2326

13. ash2326

So there you have m= slope =-1/3 and y intercept c= 3 That's comparing the two equations

14. unheard

Awesome, @ash2326 . Thanks so much. Could you help me with two more?

15. ash2326

Yeah, I could. If they are similar, you should try them first

16. unheard

No, the whole thing is part of a small project, but I am no good in Math, excpecially in slopes, haha. How would I graph the line in slope- intercept method? I just need to describe it.

17. ash2326

OK, I'll help you,but first close this question and post it as a new question. That way more users can help

18. unheard

Awesome, okay.
