 Question 168848This question is from textbook : what is the slope an the y intercept of -7x-4y=16This question is from textbook Found 2 solutions by Mathtut, jim_thompson5910:Answer by Mathtut(3670)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!write in slope intercept form y=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y intercept. -4y=7x+16--->divide all terms by -4 : y=-7/4x-4 : Answer by jim_thompson5910(28545)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given equation. Add to both sides. Rearrange the terms. Divide both sides by to isolate y. Break up the fraction. Reduce. So the equation is now in slope intercept form where the slope is and the y-intercept is note: the y-intercept is the point
