# How do you find the slope and intercept of y=5/6x+1?

Jan 1, 2016

The slope, $m$, is $\frac{5}{6}$, and the y-intercept, $b$, is $1$.

#### Explanation:

The slope intercept form of a linear equation is represented by the general equation $y = m x + b$, where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y-intercept.

$y = \frac{5}{6} x + 1$ is in slope intercept form, where $m = \frac{5}{6}$ and $b = 1$.
