How do you find the slope and intercept of #y = x + 1#? Algebra Graphs of Linear Equations and Functions Slope-Intercept Form 1 Answer Marvin V. Jun 8, 2017 Answer: Slope is 1 and y-intercept is 1. Explanation: The standard form is #y=mx+b#. Where #m# is our slope and #b# is our y-intercept. Since #y=x+1# is already in standard form we can easily get the slope and y-intercept. The slope is #1# and y-intercept is #1#. Related questions What is Slope-Intercept Form? How do you find the "m" and "b" of any linear equation?
