 # Slope and Intercept of a Line Worksheet

Objective: I know how to find the slope and intercept of a line.

The equation y = mx + b is in the slope-intercept form for the equation of a line. When an equation is in this form, the slope of the line is given by m and the y-intercept is located at b.

What is the slope and y-intercept of the following lines?

y = -5x + 17
Slope =
Intercept =

y = 2x – 5
Slope =
Intercept =

4x + y = 0
Slope =
Intercept =

8x - 4y = -216
Slope =
Intercept =

-2y - 16 = 6x
Slope =
Intercept =

y = -3x – 14
Slope =
Intercept =

-90 = -2y + 10x
Slope =
Intercept =

10x - 5y = 395
Slope =
Intercept =

4x - 2y = 8
Slope =
Intercept =

6x + 2y = 86
Slope =
Intercept =

25x + 5y = 485
Slope =
Intercept =

-12x = -60 - 4y
Slope =
Intercept =
