Slope Intercept Form is also called as y-intercept form or gradient. Slope Intercept Form is used to calculate the Equation of a straight line when a slope(m) and y - intercept(b) of the line is given.

 

Steps for Slope Intercept Form

Back to Top
Step 1 :  

Observe the slope(m) and y-intercept(b) of the line given.



Step 2 :  

Apply the formula: y = mx + b [Slope intercept form]
Where, b = y-intercept of the line
m = Slope of the line.



Example Problems on Slope Intercept Form

  1. Determine the equation of the line with slope of 2 and y-intercept 4?


    Step 1 :  

    Given that:
    Slope(m) = 2
    y-intercept(b) = 4



    Step 2 :  

    Substitute the given values in the formula:
    Equation of the line => y = mx + b
    Equation of the line => y = (2)x + 4



    Answer  :  

    y = 2x + 4



  2. Determine the equation of the line with slope of 5 and y-intercept -3?


    Step 1 :  

    Given that:
    Slope(m) = 5
    y-intercept(b) = -3



    Step 2 :  

    Substitute the given values in the formula:
    Equation of the line => y = mx + b
    Equation of the line => y = (5)x + (-3)



    Answer  :  

    y = 5x - 3
