# How do you find the slope and intercept to graph y=1.25x+8?

Mar 8, 2018

The slope is $1.25$ or $\frac{5}{4}$. The $y$-intercept is $\left(0 , 8\right)$.

#### Explanation:

The slope-intercept form is

$y = m x + b$

In an equation in slope-intercept form, the slope of the line will always be $m$. The $y$-intercept will always be $\left(0 , b\right)$.
