# How do you find the slope and intercept to graph y=14x?

Nov 5, 2015

Using $y = m x + b$.

#### Explanation:

$y = m x + b$ is slope intercept form. $m$ meaning slope, and $b$ meaning y intercept.

You're given $y = 14 x$ which could be interpreted as $y = 14 x + 0$ which lines up very well with slope intercept form. The coefficient of x is 14, which is the slope (where $m$ is), and the addition at the end of the function is 0, which means that your y intercept is 0 ($b$).

Your fuction will look like this graph below once you graph.
