Answer:

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=mx+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)

Answer:

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=mx+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#.
