Question

Determine the slope and y-intercept of the line whose equation is y = 3/2x + 3

  1. slope: 5; y-intercept: (0,3)
  2. slope: 3/2; y-intercept: (0,3)
  3. slope: 4; y-intercept: (0,3/2)
  4. slope: 1/5; y-intercept: (0,5)

Hint:

Given the Equation of line will be y = mx + b .

the slope of line will be  m and intercept will be  b .


 

The correct answer is: slope: 3/2; y-intercept: (0,3)


    Given The line y = 3/2 x + 3
    It is in slope-intercept form, i.e., y=mx +b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
    Step 1 : slop is m  and m = 3/2
    So, the slope of the line is 3/2
    Step 2 : b = 3
    So ,  y intercept is (0,3).

    m is slope and b is intercept.
