### What is the slope of the line with equation Y equals 4X-12?

This equation is in a form called the slope-intercept form. The
general formula for this form is:
y = m*x + b
The slope of this line is "m"
The y-axis intercept is "b"
Because you want to find the slope of the line, you just need to
locate where "m" is in your equation. If you compare your equation
with the general formula, you will see that m = 4 in your equation,
so the slope of the line is 4.

### What is the part of the slope intercept form that represents the rate of change?

y=mx +b is the equation for slope intercept form.
y = the output of the equation
m = the slope
x = the input into the formula
b = the y-intercept
The slope represents the rate of change. This is because for
every input, or x, you put into the equation, is changed by m. So
the M portion of this equation would be the rate of change.

### What is the point-slope form of a line with slope that contains the point (-1 2)?

Another point is needed to work out the slope and its straight
line equation. Slope is worked out as: (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)
-----------------------
With slope m and going through a point (x0, y0), a line has
equation:
y - y0 = m(x - x0)
Thus the point-slope equation of a line with slope m through the
point (-1, 2) is given by:
y - 2 = m(x - -1)
→ y - 2 = m(x + 1)
