: : I need to know how to find the slope of the line on these 2 equations.
: : 2x+4y=16
: : 2x-3y=-13
: Remember your y=mx+b formula? and that b=slope? Just solve for y and find your b
Little typo Liz: m is the slope (rise)/(run) and b is the y-intercept. If you let x=0 then y=b which is the point at which the line crosses the y axis
