Answer:

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 = mx + b#

Here

  • #m=# slope
  • #b=# #y#-intercept

Your equation gives you all the answers

#y= 2x + 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.
