If a is the x-intercept, b is the y-intercept, and m is the slope of the line with equation 4x + 12y = 1, then what is the value of a + b + m?

4x  + 12y =  1

 

Slope =  -4/12 =  -1/3

 

x int   →     4x   = 1     →   x =   1/4

 

y int    →    12y  = 1     →  y  = 1/12

 

a + b + m =   1/4 + 1/12 - 1/3    =   3/12 + 1/12 - 4/12  =    0
