Question

2x-4y+7=0 how do I find the slope for this?

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    The slope is 1/2 and the y intercept is 7/4

    Step-by-step explanation:

    2x-4y+7=0

    To find the slope, we need to put the equation in slope intercept form

    y = mx+b

    So we need to solve for y

    Subtract 2x from each side

    2x-2x-4y+7=0-2x

    -4y +7 = -2x

    Subtract -7

    -4y+7-7 = -2x-7

    -4y = -2x-7

    Divide by -4

    -4y/-4 = -2x/-4  -7/-4

    y = 1/2 x +7/4

    The slope is 1/2 and the y intercept is 7/4
