# How do you find the slope and intercept of y = 10 + 3x?

Mar 14, 2016

slope = 3 , y-intercept = 10

#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in the form $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{ y = mx + c }}$

where m represents the gradient (slope) and c the y-intercept is useful as m and c can be extracted directly.

the equation here is almost in this form

as y = 10 + 3x is the same as y = 3x + 10

from y = 3x + 10 → slope = 3 and y-intercept = 10
