slope = 4

standard form y = kx + b
answered Mar 8, 2011 by HenryYang Level 3 User (2,140 points)
slope=mx+b. m is the slope and x is the variable of m. and b is the y-intercept of the line.

how do I find the slope for x-2y=4?
answered Feb 23, 2012 by anonymous
The equation you wrote is the standard form of a line: y = mx + b.

In this equation, m is the slope of the line and b is the y-intercept.

So the slope here is 4.

What is the slope of the line through the points (-2, 7) and (3, -3)? m = _?_
answered Sep 25, 2012 by anonymous
In y-intercept form, y=mx+b, with m being the slope. Therefore, in the equation y=4x+b, the slope is 4.

It's in standard form in which is y=mx+b. Therefore you take 4x and put a 1 under it to give you your slope. Which will be y=4x/1+3

The slope is equal to the "m" and always remember the formula because this is the hint of the answers:

GIVEN; y=4x + 3

If the formula is: y= mx + b

                      then the slope is 4..

Whats the slope of  a line running throw (6,8) and (3,-6)
answered Jan 3 by lucky

Given: y=4x+3
The slope of a line is the ratio of unit change in y to unit change in x.
In other words, the slope means that, if x increases 1 unit, how much y increases or decreases
its quantity.
  So that the slope reveals how steeply or slowly the graph goes up or down.

Write standard form of a linear equation in functional form, e.g. y=f(x)=mx+b···Eq.1
In Eq.1, if x increases 1 unit, then y=f(x+1)=m(x+1)+b=mx+m+b···Eq.2

So, the unit change in y is: Eq.2-Eq.1=f(x+1)-f(x)=m

Thus, the slope, the ratio of unit change, is: y : x = m : 1

Therefore, the slope of line y=mx+b is equal to m.
That is: m, the coefficient of x, indicates the slope.

In this question, 4 corresponds to m.  So, the slope is 4.

The answer: The slope of line y=4x+3 is 4.
