College Algebra (6th Edition)

The general form of a linear equation is $Ax+By+C=0$. To find the slope and $y$-intercept, isolate the $y$ in the equation. The slope is the coefficient of the $x$-term, and the $y$-intercept is the term after the $x$-term. $Ax+By+C=0$ $By=-Ax-C$ $y=-\frac{A}{B}x-\frac{C}{B}$
