In the standard (x,y) coordinate plane, what is the slope of the line with the equation 2y - 6x = 4?
A.) 2 B.) 3 C.) 4 D.) 6 E.) -3 Slope-intercept form for the equation of a line is y = mx + b. m is the slope {how much the line rises over how much it runs} b is the y-intercept {where the line crosses the y-axis} 2y - 6x = 4 2y = 6x + 4 {added 6x to both sides} y = 3x + 2 {divided both sides by 2} slope = 3 {the number in front of the x, when the equation is in slope-intercept form} B.) 3Ask Algebra House
