The equation would be

#### Explanation:

B is the y intercept, the point of the line that touches some part of the y-axis.

M is the slope (rise over run). You find it by plugging two points on the line into the slope equation:

Y is basically the linear function.

So if I have a line with the equation:

I can plug in values for **1**. That means at (x,

And as I gave the equations above, when you find the second coordinate (the first being (1, 3)) by plugging in another value for

Perhaps the question refers to the "intercept form" of a line:

where the

To convert this form to slope intercept form

multiply the equation

So, to convert from the "intercept form" of a line

to the "slope intercept form"

the slope
