In an equation of the form y = mx + b, the m value is the slope and the b value is the y-intercept. We can use these two values to quickly draw the graph of a line. First, place a point on the y axis at the value of b. From there, count the rise up and the run to the right (if the slope is positive) or left (if the slope is negative) and plot a new point. Connect these two points to draw the line.
