How to solve the slope of the line `3x - 2y - 8= 0?`

llltkl | Student

The slope intercept form of a straight line is y=mx+c where m is the slope of the line.

So, to solve the slope of the line 3x - 2y - 8= 0 we have to isolate y and write the equation in the above mentioned form.

Given that, `3x - 2y - 8= 0`

`rArr -2y=-3x+8`

`rArr y=((-3x+8))/-2`

`rArr y=(-3/-2)x+(8/-2)`

`rArr y=(3/2)x-4` 

Therefore, the slope of the line 3x - 2y - 8= 0 is 3/2.
