`3x + 5y - 30 = 0` State the slope and y intercept of the graph of each equation.
The equation 3x+5y-30=0 is the general form (standard form). Rewrite the original equation in slope-intercept form which is y=mx+b.
y=-3/5 x + 30/5
y=-3/5 x+ 6
In the equation y=mx+b. The m represents the slope and the b represents the y-intercept. Therefore the slope m=-3/5 and the y-intercept is b=6.
Formula: y=mx + c
m represents the gradient and c represents the y intercept
y= -3/5x + 30/5
-3/5x + 6
the gradient is -3/5 or -.60
y-intercept is 6
In general the slope and intercept of y=mx+b is
m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
Y= ( -3/5)x+30/5
y= (-3/5)x + 6
The above equation the slope is m= (-3/5) and b=6 is y intercept
