Question #27087

Which number in the following equation is the slope?

y=-6x+10

y=-6x+10

Expert's answer

The most useful form of straight-line equations is the"slope-intercept" form:

y = mx + b

This is called the slope-intercept form because"m" is the slope and "b" gives the y-intercept. (For a

review of how this equation is used for graphing, look at slope and graphing.)

in our case y=-6x+10 so the slope m=-6 , y-intercept b=10slope m=-6

y = mx + b

This is called the slope-intercept form because"m" is the slope and "b" gives the y-intercept. (For a

review of how this equation is used for graphing, look at slope and graphing.)

in our case y=-6x+10 so the slope m=-6 , y-intercept b=10slope m=-6
