# How do you find the slope and intercept of #y=x+4#?

##### 2 Answers

slope

y-intercept

x-intercept

#### Explanation:

The equation can be written in slope-intercept form, which is:

#y=mx+b#

where:

Looking back at your equation, this means that:

#m=1rArr# slope

#b=4rArr# y-intercept

To find the x-intercept, substitute

#y=x+4#

#0=x+4#

#-4=xrArr# x-intercept

Slope is

#### Explanation:

Let

Therefore slope is
