# How do you find the slope and y-intercept for the line y=4x+1?

Sep 26, 2015

The slope, $m$, is $4$.
The y-intercept, $b$, is $1$.
$y = 4 x + 1$ is a linear equation in the slope-intercept form $y = m x + b$, where $m$ is the slope, and $b$ is the y-intercept.
For the equation $y = 4 x + 1$, $m = 4 \mathmr{and} b = 1$.
