# How do you find the slope and y intercept of y = 3x + 9?

Jun 7, 2018

$m = 3$ (the slope) and the y-intercept S(0;9)

#### Explanation:

The equation has the form
$y = m x + n$ so the slope is given by $3$ and the y-intercept
S(0;9)

I tried this:

#### Explanation:

You have an equation of a line in the form:

$y = m x + c$

i.e.

$y = \text{slope"*x+"y-intercept}$

so in your case you have:

$\text{slope} = 3$
$\text{y-intercept} = 9$
