# How is the slope of a linear function related to the number of zeros for the function?

**Solution:**

We know that the number of zeros for the linear function is 1.

The slope-intercept form can be used

y = mx + b

Where m is the slope

b is the y-intercept

For example consider the linear function y = 3x + 1

Here 3 is the slope

1 is the y-intercept

The slope is the coefficient of x in the slope-intercept form.

As the degree of the linear function is 1, the number of zeros is 1.

Therefore, for a linear function, the number of zeros should be 1.

## How is the slope of a linear function related to the number of zeros for the function?

**Summary:**

The slope of a linear function helps to determine the number of zeros for the function.
