# Find the slope of an equation of a line

##### Question
Find the slope of the line 4y -3x +3 = 0.
To solve this question, we need to have some knowledge on the slope-intercept form of a line. The following math videos will explain the ideas behind it:After watching the videos above, we should know that an equation of a line can be in the form of:
y= mx +b

Where m : slope of the line
b  : y-intercept of the line

Now, looking at the question:
4y -3x +3 = 0
It is quite clear that this equation needs to be changed into the slope-intercept form for us to find the slope. We can do so by manipulating the equation as shown:

Notice that the final equation above is in the slope-intercept form? By comparing this equation above with y= mx +b, clearly we can see that:
slope = m = 3/4
As an extra, we can also see that the y-intercept of this line is:
y-intercept = b = -3/4

 Oct 13, 2015 Rating y=-6x-4 by: Visual Math For: y=-6x-4 The general equation for a straight line: y=mx+c where m is the slope. By comparing, you will see that: Slope = m = -6 y-intercept = c = -4

 Nov 20, 2014 Rating almost useful by: Anonymous I found this website to be really useful. But I wish that it game more examples of the different possible equations you could be dealing with. That's what I was leaning towards.

 Apr 18, 2009 Rating Slope of y =3x -7 by: Anonymous Well, if you compare y = 3x -7 with y= mx + b where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept, you can clearly see that: m = 3 b = -7 Hence, the slope of y=3x-7 is 3....
