What is the slope of the line 8x + 6y = 12?

8x + 6y = 12        the idea is to get y by itself

 

Subtract 8x from both sides

 

6y  =  -8x + 12        divide throgh by 2

 

3y = -4x + 6           divide through by 3

 

y = (-4/3)x + 2

 

In this form, y = mx + b,  the slope, m,  is  the  (-4/3)  in front of "x"

 

 

 

cool cool cool
