Graph Using Slope-Intercept Form
Finding the Slope and y-Intercept of an Equation:
An equation of a line written
in the form y = mx + b, is
y = mx + b
where m is the _____________and b is the
_________________ of the equation’s
y = 3x + 1
Identify the slope and y-intercept of the line with the given equation.
a. y = 3x + 4
b. 3x + y = 2
a. Since the equation is in y = mx + b form, the slope of the line is ___________, and the
y-intercept is ________.
b. Rewrite the equation in slope-intercept form by solving for y.
y = ___________________
the slope of the line is ______________, and the y-intercept is ___________________.
