I need to find a slope and y intercept of the line and write the fractional answers in lowest terms.
2y+8x+3=12+8x; I would like to try this one and get your input.

2y+8x-8x-12-3;

2y/2 = 9/2; y = 9/2 however I did not find the slope. I don't think there is one in this problem??

  • ALGEBRA -

    If the x term drops out and you have only
    y = b , where b is a constant,
    then the slope is zero
    That is, you have a horizontal line.

    Btw, If the y term drops out and you only have x = c left, then you have a vertical line and the slope would be undefined.

    A-HA! I see now. Thank you.
