##### 1 Answer

Manipulate the equation into the slope-intercept form

#### Explanation:

The simplest method of finding the slope and y-intercept of a linear equation is to put it into the slope-intercept form of

Starting from

The equation is then in slope-intercept form, where

.

.

Let's take a look at why the y-intercept and slope are represented by

First, note that the y-intercept is the point on the graph where

So, setting

Next, note that as
