-2y=6(5-3x)how do you find the y intercept and slope for this type of equation?

Simplify and put it into slope-intercept form:

y=9x-15

From the above the slope is readily seen to be 9 and the y-intercept is -15.

If this is homework be sure to show your work.

SOURCE: why is the y-intercept of the graph of 4x+2y=12?

use the slope-intercept form to graph y=2/3x+4

Posted on Oct 10, 2012

The easiest way to solve and graph and equation is to put the equation into the slope intercept form y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b in the y-intercept.

To do this, we subtract 4x from both sides and get y = -4x + 0.

From this we know m = -4 (slope) and the y-intercept is 0.

I always start with the y-intercept and put a point there. Thus, we have a point at (0,0). Using this as a starting point, we now use the slope of -4 to get future points. Since it is negative, we go one unit to the left and up four units. So we have the point (-1,4). Using a ruler, we connect these points and continue on both sides to produce the line.

There is also a great free online program/app called Desmos that you can use to check your work. Type in the equation of the line and it will graph it for you.

Good luck,

That's a little difficult since there is no y in the equation.

The slope is -3 and the y-intercept is -44.

8x - 8 + 2y = 0

8X + 2Y = 8

y = -4x + 4

X = 0 por y-intercept

y=mx+b

Y = 8/2 or 4

Knock knock

Who's there?

4 who?

Why yall want me to do yall's homework 4?

Do the math on that! LOL

2x + 4y = -8 ; divide each side by 2

x + 2y = -4 ; subtract x from both sides

2y = -4 - x ; rearrange

2y = -1x -4 ; divide each side by 2

y = -1/2x - 2 ; relate to slope/intercept form of line (y=mx+b)

implies there are multiple solutions that fall along a line with slope -1/2 and y intercept of -2

Sample points on this line are (-4,0), (-2,-1), (0,-2), (2,-3)
