Find the slope and y-intercept of the equation.
y+3=-1/3x

  • algebra 1 -

    The equation of a straight line is :

    y = mx + b


    m = Slope

    b = the Y Intercept


    y = - 1 / 3 x - 3


    Slope = - 1 / 3

    Y Intercept = - 3

    how would it be -3 on y intercept?

  • algebra 1 -

    A y-intercept is a point where the graph of a function or relation intersects with the y-axis of the coordinate system.

    As such, these points satisfy x=0


    y(x=0) = - ( 1 / 3 ) 0 - 3

    y(x=0) = 0 - 3

    y(x=0) = - 3
