# How do you find the slope and y intercept for y=2x-1?

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$y = m x + b$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$with has a slope of $m$ and a y-intercept of $b$
$y = 2 x - 1$ is in "slope-intercept form"
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$has a slope of $2$ and a y-intercept of $\left(- 1\right)$
