How do you find the slope and y intercept of y=x?

See the solution process below:

Explanation:

We can rewrite this equation as:

$y = 1 x + 0$

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is: $y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and $\textcolor{b l u e}{b}$ is the y-intercept value.

For this equation:

$y = \textcolor{red}{1} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{0}$

Therefore:

The slope is $\textcolor{red}{m = 1}$

The y-intercept is $\textcolor{b l u e}{b = 0}$ or $\left(0 , 0\right)$
