Question

Identify the slope and y intercept of the equation of the line: y = -1/3x + 1

  1. Slope: 1/3; y-intercept: 1
  2. Slope: 1/3; y-intercept: -1
  3. Slope: -1/3; y-intercept: 1
  4. Slope: -1/3; y-intercept: 0

Hint:

the Equation of line be y = mx + c .
  slope of line is m and intercept is b .

The correct answer is: Slope: -1/3; y-intercept: 1


    The slope-intercept form is y=mx +b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
    In y = -1/3x + 1,
    Step 1 :
    m = -1/3
    So , the slope is -1/3
    step 2 : y intercept
    b = 1
    So ,  the y intercept is 1 .
    So , slope = -1/3 and intercept = 1 .

    slope is the x's coefficient and intercept is constant part.
