# Write the equation in slope-intercept form. What are the slope and y-intercept? -3x - 10y = 7

**Solution:**

Using the slope intercept form

y = mx + b

Where m is the slope

b is the y intercept

The given equation is

-3x - 10y = 7

Let us add 3x on both sides

-3x - 10y + 3x = 7 + 3x

-10y = 3x + 7

Now dividing both sides by -10

y = -3x/10 - 7/10

From this equation we know that

m = -3/10

b = -7/10

Therefore, the equation in slope intercept form is y = -3x/10 - 7/10. The slope is -3/10 and y-intercept is -7/10.

## Write the equation in slope-intercept form. What are the slope and y-intercept? -3x - 10y = 7

**Summary:**

The equation in slope intercept form is y = -3x/10 - 7/10. The slope is -3/10 and y-intercept is -7/10.
