How do you find the slope and y intercept of #y=x+6#?
The equation of a line in
where m represents the slope and b, the y-intercept.
The advantage to having the equation in this form is that m and b can be extracted 'easily'.
and by comparison with the slope-intercept form above.
m = 1 and b = 6
Thus the slope = 1 and the y-intercept = 6
