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

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

    slope is-1/3 n y intercept is 3

    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

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

    I think I understand the comparing the equations.

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

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

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

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

    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.

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