$m=1/4; b=-1/3 $
Work Step by Step
This equation is in the form y=mx+b. In order to figure out what the slope is, we must figure out what x is being multiplied by. x is being multiplied by 1/4, so we know that m, the slope, is 1/4. We now must figure out what is being added to x. -1/3 is being added to x, so we know that b, the y intercept, is -1/3.
