Question

-6x-y=-6 what is m and b

2 Answer

  • in the slope intercept formula (y = mx + b) 
    the m = slope
    the b = y intercept

    hope this helps :)

    you have to rearrange the equation to match the formula

    so.....

    -y = 6x - 6

    m = 6x/-y = -6 (you can just see it as 6/-1 you dont have to count the x and y)
    b = -6
  • m = -6
    b = 6
    (work)
    -6x - y = -6
    +6x +6x
    -1 (- y) = (6x - 6) -1
    y = -6x + 6
