3x-5y=1 and 6x - 3y = 18 Slope
<-- Enter Line 1 Equation
<-- Enter Line 2 Equation (only if you are not pressing
Slope
)
What is the slope (gradient) of 3x-5y=1?
Simplify the equation for line 1 to get it into our y = mx + b format:
3x - 5y = 1
-5y = -3x + 1
Divide each side of the equation by -5 to isolate y:
-5y
-5
=
-3x + 1
-5
Simplifying and evaluating, we have:
y = 0.6x - 0.2
Therefore, the slope (gradient) of line equation 1 = 0.6
