#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#y=2x+9" is in this form"#

#"with slope "=2" and y-intercept "=9#

See below:

#### Explanation:

The key realization is that our equation is of the form

**slope-intercept form**, where

We see that our coefficient on **this is our slope**.

We also see that our constant is **this is our #y#-intercept**.

Hope this helps!
