# How do you find the slope and y intercept for y=3x-5?

Jun 3, 2015

You can "read" these information from your equation which is in the form:
$y = m x + c$
with $m =$ slope $= 3$
$c =$ y-intercept $= - 5$

Answer: The slope is $3$ and the y-intercept is $- 5$.

Problem: Find slope and y-intercept for $y = 3 x - 5$

The equation for the slope-intercept form is $y = m x + b$, where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y-intercept.

For the equation $y = 3 x - 5$, the slope is $3$ and the y-intercept is $- 5$.
