If the equation of a line is in y = mx + b form, which is called slope intercept form, we can easily see the slope as the "m" coefficient in front of x. But, if y is not isolated, you will need to get y by itself in order to find the slope value. Make sure that whatever you do to an equation, you do to both sides.
