what do you do when you are trying to find slopes and intercepts to solve equations? if I ask what is the slope and y- intercept of y=5/3 x +4 what would the answer be?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!


what do you do when you are trying to find slopes and intercepts to solve equations

When we try to find out the slope and y-intercept we are trying to find the tan of the angle which the line make with the positive y-axis and when we are trying to find the y-intercept we are trying to find the point where the line touches the y-axis.

So if the slope of the line is "m" and the y-intercept is "b" then the equation of the line in slope intercept form is

y=mx+b 


Slope and y intercept of y=5x/3 +4

On comparing with the slope-intercept form,slope=m=5/3 and y-intercept is 4(answer)
