The slope of this line is 3.

Step-by-step explanation:

Solve 12x – 4y = 3 for y to obtain the equation in slope-intercept form:

Add 4y to both sides, obtaining 12x = 3 + 4y

Subtract 3 from both sides:  12x – 3 = 4y

Finally, divide all terms by 4:  y = 3x – 3/4

The slope of this line is 3.

2. Answer:  The slope of the graph is 3.

Step-by-step explanation:

The equation of a line in slope intercept for is given by :- , where m is the slope of the line.

The given equation of  the line graphed by Helaine = Now, rewrite the above equation in slope-intercept form by adding 4y  and  subtracting 3 from both sides , we get Divide 4 on both sides , we get which is the slope-intercept form. Hence, the slope of Helaine’s line =3
