# How do you find the slope and intercept to graph #y=2x#?

##### 2 Answers

See explanation

#### Explanation:

Standard for of equation is

where m is the gradient (slope) and c is the y-intercept. The gradient is the amount of up for the amount of along. So a gradient of say

In your case the m is of value 2. This may be quite correctly written as

The line will cross the y-axis at

so

and

So your graph crosses the y-axis at

The slope is

#### Explanation:

For the equation

graph{y=2x [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
