Hi!, to find the slope, we have to change the equation to slope intercept form.\[y=mx+b\]

How do we do that?

And what does the "m" in the formula you just stated stand for.

m stands for slope
anonymous
  • anonymous
you have to solve for y to put it in the slope intercept form

Let's do this shall we? \[-48=2x-8y\] add 8y to both sides.\[-48+8y=2x\] Now, we're going to add 48 to both sides in order to get the y alone.\[8y=2x-48\] From here, we have to divide all numbers by 8, so that we have just y. \[y=\frac{ 2 }{ 8 }x-\frac{ 48 }{ 8 }\] We can simplify this, so we get\[y=\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }x+6\] Remember, m is the slope, so as you can see, the slope of the line would be \[\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }\]
