Question

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is y = mx + b, where x and y are coordinates of an ordered pair, m is the slope of the line, and b is where the line crosses the y-axis.

Which is an equivalent equation solved for the slope, m?

m = yx + b
m = y-b/x
m =y/x-b
m = y – b/x

    Answer:

    Option b

    Step-by-step explanation:

    GIven is an equation of a straight line in slope intercept form

    y = mx+b

    where m=slope, b = y intercept and (x,y) ordered pair on the line

    We are to solve for m

    y =mx+b

    Revert left side and right side

    mx+b=y

    Subtract b from both sides

    mx=y-b

    Divide by m

    m=\frac{y-b}{x}

    Thus we find that option b is right answer

    y = mx + b….subtract b from both sides
    y – b = mx ….divide both sides by x
    (y – b) / x = m
