 Question 651290: what is the slope of 3x+4y=60Found 2 solutions by nerdybill, lenny460:Answer by nerdybill(7090)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!what is the slope of 3x+4y=60 . put into "slope-intercept" form: 3x+4y=60 4y=-3x+60 y=(-3/4)x+15 Because slope-intercept form is y=mx+b where m is the slope from inspection the slope is -3/4 Answer by lenny460(914)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!what is the slope of 3x+4y=60 3x + 4y = 60 Subtract 3x from each side of the equation. 3x + 4y - 3x = 60 - 3x Combine like terms: 3x - 3x = 0 4y = 60 - 3x or 4y = -3x + 60 Divide each item by 4 4y/4 = -3x/4 + 60/4 y = -3x/4 + 15 The Slope Intercept Formula: y = mx + b m = slope b = y-intercept Therefore: The Slope of the above straight line graph is: -3/4 Lennox Obuong Algebra Student Email: obuong3@aol.com
