Hi Fanny; 3x-2y=12 The equation is in standard form... Ax+By=C, A>0 Slope is -A/B -(3/-2) A negative of a negative is positive.... 3/2 2/19/2014 | Vivian L. Comment
You can just choose 2 points on the line, and get the slope by m = ( Y_{2} - Y_{1 ) /} (X_{2 }- X_{1 ) } Intercepts : ( 0 , -6 ) ( 4, 0 ) m = 0 - ( - 6) = 6 = 3 4 - 0 4 2 2/19/2014 | Parviz F. Comment
Re arrange the equation to slope intercept form y=mx + b where m is slope and b is y intercept 3x - 2y =12 -2y = 12 - 3x 2y = 3x -12 y = 3/2x - 6 m = slope = 3/2 :) 2/18/2014 | Amarjeet K. Comment
