Homework Help: math and slopes

Posted by Wayne on Wednesday, April 18, 2007 at 8:41pm.


Determine the slope of the line.

The line whose equation is 3x-2y=8

Solve for y by putting y on one side and everything else on the other.
-2y=8-3x. Multiply by -1.
2y = 3x -8 and divide by 2
y=(3/2)x -8/2 or
y= (3/2)x -4
The form for a straight line is
y = mx + b
where m is the slope and b is the y intercept.
