How do you find the slope and intercept of #f(x) = 5x - 7#?

1 Answer

Answer:

The slope is #5# and the y-intercept is #-7#.

Explanation:

Slope-intercept form is basically

#y=mx+b#

Here

  • #x# and #y# represent the #x# and #y# coordinates
  • #m# represents the slope's value
  • #b# represents the #y#-intercept

Knowing this and applying it to this situation, #5# replaces #m# and #-7# replaces #b#, meaning #5# is the slope and #-7# is the #y#-intercept.

You can apply this to any equation using slope-intercept form.
