Is it possible to find the slope of a line if the equation has two ys?
Find slope of the line whose equation is 8y = 7  2y
Solve for y and you'll have a horizontal line.
Combine the y terms.
8y+2y=7
10y=7
y=7/10
The general equation for a straight line is
y = mx + b
m is the slope and b is the y intercept.
so what is m in the equation (if there is no x term)?
How would this equation look on a graph? That may help you decide the slope.
A slope shows the relationship between X and Y axes. You need both X and Y values.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
