# How do you find the slope and the y-intercept of the line #-4x+2y=-2#?

The advantage to having the equation in this form is that m and b may be extracted 'easily'

Rearrange the given equation into this form.

add 4x to both sides.

To obtain y as the subject, divide ALL terms on both sides by 2

Extracting m and b gives.

To find the slope and y-intercept of the line -4x + 2y = -2, rearrange the equation into slope-intercept form, which is y = mx + b, where m represents the slope and b represents the y-intercept. -4x + 2y = -2 2y = 4x - 2 y = 2x - 1

Comparing with y = mx + b, the slope (m) is 2, and the y-intercept (b) is -1.
