# How do you find the slope and y intercept of 2x+5=y?

Mar 27, 2018

slope = 2
y-intercept = 5

#### Explanation:

the standard form of the equation is $y = m x + b$

$m = s l o p e$
b=y-intercept

$y = 2 x + 5$

$2$ is in the place of $m$, so it would be the slope
$5$ is in the place of $b$, so it would be the y-intercept

$\text{slope "=2," y-intercept } = 5$

#### Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{where m is the slope and b the y-intercept}$

$y = 2 x + 5 \leftarrow \textcolor{b l u e}{\text{is in this form}}$

$\text{with slope m "=2" and y-intercept, b } = 5$
