# Find Slope Given Slope-Intercept Form Worksheet

## 6 problems

Find slope given slope-intercept form involves determining the slope of a linear equation when it's presented in slope-intercept form, y=mx+b. The slope (m) represents the rate of change or steepness of the line. By understanding how to identify the coefficient of x in this form, we can easily find the slope and interpret its significance in the context of the equation and its graph.

For example:

Find the slope of the line y=12x+6.

## Solved Example

Q. Find the slope of the line $y = -7x + 13$. Write your answer as an integer or as a simplified proper or improper fraction.
Solution:
1. Identify Form: Identify the form of the linear equation.$\newline$The equation $y = -7x + 13$ is in the slope-intercept form, which is $y = mx + b$, where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y-intercept.
2. Determine Slope: Determine the slope of the line.$\newline$By comparing $y = -7x + 13$ with the slope-intercept form $y = mx + b$, we can see that the coefficient of $x$ is $-7$. This coefficient represents the slope of the line.
