Writing Equations in Slope-Intercept Form - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

The slope-intercept form is one way to write a linear equation (the equation of a line). The slope-intercept form is written as y = mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept (the point where the line crosses the y-axis). It's usually easy to graph a line using y=mx+b. Other forms of linear equations are the standard form and the point-slope form.
