### Slope in Linear Equations :

Slope in Linear Equations Chris Hill

### Slope Intercept Equations :

Slope Intercept Equations Y=mx+b is the slope intercept form of a linear equation. X and Y are variables M is the slope of the graphed equation B is the value of y where the graph crosses the y-axis

### Finding slope from equations :

Finding slope from equations Coefficient – the number by which a variable is multiplied (ex. 3 is the coefficient of 3X) Slope is the coefficient of X when the equation is in slope intercept form.

### Finding slope in equations :

Finding slope in equations If your equation is y=3x-7 your slope is 3 If there is a sign or an operation symbol in front of the coefficient you must include it. If your equation is y=-5x+2 the slope is -3 If your equation is y=10-8x the slope is -8

### Finding slope in equations :

Finding slope in equations If the y variable is not isolated, you cannot find slope until it is isolated. Y+3x=2 – you must isolate y on a side by itself y+3x=2 -3x -3x y=2-3x The slope in this equation is -3

### Finding slope in equations :

Finding slope in equations Sometimes you will have more than one step 16x-4y=24 Move the x -16x -16x Work vertically -4y=24-16x Divide all by -4 ÷-4 ÷-4 y=6+4x (-16 ÷-4=4) The slope is 4
