How do you find the slope and intercept of y=x+2?

May 6, 2018

Slope $= 1$

$y$-intercept $= 2$

Explanation:

For an equation of a straight line in slope-intercept form

$y = m x + c$

• slope $= m$
• $y$-intercept $= c$

So for

$y = x + 2$

$\implies y = 1 \cdot x + 2$

Thus

• slope $= 1$
• $y$-Intercept$= 2$
