 Question 615341: What is the slope-intercept form of x-3y=4Found 2 solutions by solver91311, Maths68:Answer by solver91311(16868)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Add -x to both sides. Multiply both sides by -1/3 John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it Answer by Maths68(1474)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!x-3y=4 Equation of the line slope-intercept form y=mx+b m=slope b=y-intercept Rearrange the given equation accroding to the slope-intercept form x-3y=4 -3y=-x-4 -3y=-(x+4) Divide by -3 both sides of the equation -3y/-3=-(x+4)/-3 y=(x+4)/3 y=x/3+4/3 y=(1/3)x+4/3 Compare the above equation with Equation of the line slope-intercept form Slope=m=1/3 y-intercept = b = 4/3
