 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

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

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)
