## Slope intercept form

## y = mx+b

To represent the equation of a line slope intercept form is used. There are many ways to represent the equation of line and slope intercept form is one of those ways.By using slope intercep form we can easily find the slope of the line or its y-intercept. Also, if we have slope of a line and its y-intercept given then we can find the equation of line easily.

- slope (m) : steepness of a line
- y-intercept (b) : the point where the line crosses the y-axis

Example:

Equation of line: y = 2x + 5;

Solution:

Comparing the given equation of line with slope intercept form: y = mx + b

Equation of line: y = 2x + 5;

Solution:

Comparing the given equation of line with slope intercept form: y = mx + b

Here,

- slope (m) = 2;
- y-intercept (b) = 5
