Slope y-intercept Form## I have struggle with this one

## Sorry, but I don't understand

Sorry, but I don't understand what you're asking. Can you please elaborate.

Are you referring to a specific GRE question?

## Hi Mr Hanneson,

I have a question, What if the slope of an equation (Value of m) is an integer eg:4,6,-9 etc. how to determine the run(denominator) and draw a line.

thankyou,

ABDUL HANNAN

## Keep in mind that all

Keep in mind that all integers can be written as a fraction with denominator 1.

For example, 3 = 3/1 and -9 = -9/1

So, if the slope is 5, we can say the slope is 5/1.

This means the rise is 5 and the run is 1.

Does that help?

Cheers,

Brent

## Hi Brent, in the example

## There are 2 directions we can

There are 2 directions we can go.

If the slope is -2/5, then we can have a "rise" of -2 (i.e., go DOWN 2 units) and a "run" of 5 ((i.e., go RIGHT 5 units). Here, rise/run = -2/5

OR

If the slope is -2/5, then we can have a "rise" of 2 (i.e., go UP 2 units) and a "run" of -5 ((i.e., go LEFT 5 units). Here, rise/run = 2/-5, which is the same as -2/5

Does that help?

Cheers,

Brent

## Hi Brent, would y = -3 / 2 x

## Yes, y = (-3/2)x + 3 is the

Yes, y = (-3/2)x + 3 is the slope y-intercept form of the equation 3x + 2y = 6
