Find the slope of the line.

  • Mth -

    To find the slope of the line, you have to rewrite the equation to solve for y.

    y = mx + b
    the m = the slope and the b = y-intercept.

    2x -4y = 2
    subtract 2x from both sides
    then divide each term by -4.

    What you have in front of the x will be your slope.

    do you need more help or are you okay now?
