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

Jun 18, 2018

Slope = 1
Y Intercept = (0 , 1)
X Intercept = (-1, 0 )

#### Explanation:

The slope of this is 1 as the slope intercept form is $y = m x + b$ but if there is no number in front of the x, it is assume that it is a $1$.

The y-intercept of this expression is (0 , 1). To find it, you need to plug in 0 for x like this $y = 0 + 1$ then add on the right side which gives is $y = 1$ but we need to put it as a coordinate point so whatever we plug in is our x value and our output value is our y value.

To find the x intercept, we need to replace y with 0 like this $0 = x + 1$ then we subtract 1 from both sides which we get $- 1 = x$ so we write -1 as our x value and 0 as our y value like this (-1 , 0).

slope $m = 1$, $x$ intercept is $- 1$ and $y$ intercept is $- 1$

#### Explanation:

This equation has the form
$y = m x + n$
where $m$ is the slope and $n$ the $y$ intercept and $- \frac{n}{m}$ the $x$intercept.
