Question

Rewrite the equation 4x + y + 2 = 0 in slope-intercept form

  1. y = 4x + 2 
  2. y = 4x – 2
  3. y = –4x + 2
  4. y = –4x – 2

Hint:

Slope-intercept form-
Equation of a line, when its slope and intercept is given can be given as- y = mx + b, where m = slope and b = y-intercept.

The correct answer is: y = –4x – 2


    GIVEN-
    4x + y + 2 = 0
    TO FIND-
    Equation of given line in slope intercept form.
    SOLUTION-
    4x + y + 2 = 0
    ∴               y = -4x - 2 ........................... (Subtracting 4x and 2 from both sides)

    FINAL ANSWER-
    Option 'd' i.e. 'y = –4x – 2' is the correct answer to the given question.
