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

Jun 4, 2015

Any linear equation of the general form:
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$y = m x + b$
is in slope intercept form with slope $m$ and y-intercept $b$

$y = x + 2 = \left(1\right) x + 2$ is an example of an equation in this form.

It has a slope of $1$ and a y-intercept of$2$
