The slope is the steepness of a line, so we can find it by counting the vertical change and horizontal change between two "good points" on a line. Draw a slope triangle that connects the two points, and write the ratio as rise over run. The y-intercept point is the point at which a line crosses the y-axis. In an equation of the form y = mx + b, the m value is the slope and the b value is the y-intercept.
