## anonymous one year ago What is the slope of a line defined by the equation 3x + y = -4?

1. Nnesha

y=mx+b is slope intercept form where m is slope and b is y-intercept you have to write 3x+y=-4 in slope intercept so solve for y

2. Nnesha

3x+y=-4 do you know how to solve for y ?

3. anonymous

No.

4. anonymous

-1?

5. Nnesha

no

6. Nnesha

$\huge\rm 3x+y=-4$ move 3x to the right side

7. anonymous

-7?

8. Nnesha

hmm how ?

9. Nnesha

how would you cancel out the 3x from the left side ? would u add 3x both sides ? or subtract 3x both sides ?
