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

Apr 23, 2018

slope is 1, y intercept is (0,5)

#### Explanation:

By using the slope intercept equation, you can see what the slope and y int is without doing any calculation

$y = m x + b$

m is the slope, and b is the y intercept

in your equations, the m is 1 (since there is no value visible, it is assumed to be a 1)
This means each time you move right one x value, you move up one y value

the b in your equation is a 5, so the coordinate is simply (0,5)

For the equation $y = x + 5$, the slope is $1$, and the y-intercept is $5$.

#### Explanation:

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

$y = m x + b$,

where:

$m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y-intercept.

Therefore, for the equation $y = x + 5$, the slope is $1$, and the y-intercept is $5$.
