What is the slope of the line given by the equation:

14x - 11y + 16 = 0

A.) -11

B.) -14/11

C.) -11/14

D.) 14/11

E.) 14

14x - 11y + 16 = 0

A.) -11

B.) -14/11

C.) -11/14

D.) 14/11

E.) 14

**Slope-intercept form is y = mx + b**

m is the slope{coefficient of x}

m is the slope

**b is the y-intercept**{where the line crosses the y-axis}

Get the equation in slope-intercept form.

14x - 11y + 16 = 0

+11y +11y

11y = 14x + 16 {added 11y to each side}

y = (14/11)x + (16/11) {divided each side by 11}

slope = 14/11

**D.) 14/11**
