Standard form is another way to write slope-intercept form (as opposed to y=mx+b). It is written as Ax+By=C. Next, you isolate the y-intercept(in this case it is 3) like this: Add 3/2x to each side of the equation to get this: 3/2x+y=3. You can not have a fraction in standard form so you solve this.

The slope is defined as the ratio of the vertical change between the two points the rise to the horizontal change between the same two points , the run. The slope of the line is usually represented by a letter m. (X1 , y1 ) represent the first point where as (X2 , Y2 ) present 2nd point…..

Vertical lines have an undefined slope because the horizontal change is 0 — you cannot divide a number by 0.

A positive slope means that two variables are positively related—that is, when x increases, so does y, and when x decreases, y decreases also. Graphically, a positive slope means that as a line on the line graph moves from left to right, the line rises.

There are four different types of slope. They are positive, negative, zero, and indefinite.

The slope of a line can be positive, negative, zero, or undefined. A horizontal line has slope zero since it does not rise vertically (i.e. y1 − y2 = 0), while a vertical line has undefined slope since it does not run horizontally (i.e. x1 − x2 = 0).

When you look at the two lines, you can see that the blue line is steeper than the red line. It makes sense the value of the slope of the blue line, 4, is greater than the value of the slope of the red line, . The greater the slope, the steeper the line. The next example shows a line with a negative slope.

adjective. A gentle slope or curve is not steep or severe.

1% as a decimal is 0.01 and hence the slope is 0.01. That means for a run of pipe of a certain length the rise must be 0.01 times the length. Thus for you example, since the length of the run is 80 feet which is 80 × 12 = 960 inches the rise must be 0.01 × 960 = 9.6 inches.

Using the slope-intercept form, the slope is −3 .

Therefore: The slope is: m=32. The y -intercept is: b=72 or (0,72)
