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

Apr 26, 2018

Slope $= 2$

$y$-intercept $= 1$

#### Explanation:

The equation is given in the slope-intercept form. It shows the $y$-intercept and the slope.

The equation is

$y = m x + b$

Here

• $m =$ slope
• $b =$ $y$-intercept

Your equation gives you all the answers

$y = 2 x + 1$

You have both the slope and the $y$-intercept. The slope would be $2$ and the $y$-intercept would be $1$ due to the addition sign in front of it.
