`3x + 2y - 10 = 0` State the slope and y intercept of the graph of each equation.
You are given the equation 3x+2y-10=0
As you may recall, the slope intercept form is y=m*x+b, where:
b=constant = ?(you have to figure it out!)
- So all you really have to do is simplify the equation until you get y on the left side and everything else on the right.
y= 5- 3/2x
y=-3/2x + 5` `
`y=(-3/2)x + 5`
The slope = m = `(-3/2)`
Y intercept = b = 5
Hope this helps!
In general the slope and intercept of y=mx+b is
m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
The above equation the slope is m=-3/2 and b=5 is y intercept
