 Question 186056This question is from textbook : begin by solving the linear equation for y. This will put the equation in slope-intercept form. Then find the slope and the y-intercept of the line with this equation. 3x - 4y = 12This question is from textbook Answer by hkelson(7)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!begin by solving the linear equation for y. This will put the equation in slope-intercept form. Then find the slope and the y-intercept of the line with this equation. 3x - 4y = 12 It says to solve the equation for y first. 3x - 4y = 12 : Start by subtracting 3x from both sides -4y = -3x + 12 : Then divide both sides by -4 y = 3/4x - 3 : Dividing the -3 by -4 it became a positive and 12/-4 is negative 3. The equation is now in slope-intercept form. The next part of the question said to figure out the slope and the y-intercept of the line using this equation. Slope-intercept form is y = mx + b m = slope (3/4) b = y-intercept (-3)
