The slope is the x-coefficient when the equation is in slope-intercept form.

Slope-intercept form is y =mx + b

The "m" is the slope.

So just get the equation into that form.


2y = 6x - 8


Divide both sides by 2.

y = 3x - 4


Now it is in slope-intercept form. 3 is the x-coefficint, so 3 is the slope.
