find the slope and y-intercept of 6y=-8x-18

  • math -

    6y = -8x - 18

    Put the equation in slope-intercept form, by solving for y

    6y = -8x - 18
    Divide both sides bu 6
    y = -8/6 x - 18/6
    Reduce fractions
    y = -4/3 x - 9/3

    Now, the equation is in slope-intercept form.
    y = mx + b,
    where m = slope
    and b = y-intercept

    Slope m = ?
    y-intercept b = ?

  • math -

    Slope m = -4/3
    y-intercept b = -9/3
