Question #17070

What is the slope of the line 3/4x+1/4y=1/2

Expert's answer

Equation of a straight line in slope-intercept form looks like following

y=kx+b where k-slope

So let's transform given equation into slope-intercept form:

3/4x+1/4y=1/2

3x+y=2

y=-3x+2

So slope k=-3

For further information you can watch our video about equation of a line:

y=kx+b where k-slope

So let's transform given equation into slope-intercept form:

3/4x+1/4y=1/2

3x+y=2

y=-3x+2

So slope k=-3
