The slope is 2 or 2/1

The slope is "2" (or "[latex] \frac{2}{1} [/latex]" . _____________________________________ Explanation: When a linear equation is in "slope-intercept format"; that is, ____________________ y = mx + b ; ________________ "m" (the coefficient of "x" (the slope); and "b = the y-intercept. _________________________ We are given the equation: ___________________________ "2x = y"; which can be written as: ↔ "y = 2x" ; which is in "slope-intercept form", in the sense that: y = 2x + 0 ; (b = 0) . _____________________________________________________ y = mx + b; m = 2, or 2/1, which is the slope, which is Δy/Δy, which is rise/run, which is our answer. _________________________________________
