# How do you find the slope given y=2x+9?

slope $= 2$

#### Explanation:

Given equation

$y = 2 x + 9$

Comparing the above equation with the standard form of slope-intercept form $y = m x + c$ we get

Slope: $m = 2$

y-intercept: $c = 9$

$\text{slope } = 2$

#### Explanation:

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

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

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

$y = 2 x + 9 \text{ is in this form}$

$\text{with slope "=2" and y-intercept } = 9$

See below:

#### Explanation:

The key realization is that our equation is of the form

$y = m x + b$, commonly called slope-intercept form, where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the $y$-intercept.

We see that our coefficient on $x$ is $2$- this is our slope.

We also see that our constant is $9$- this is our $y$-intercept.

Hope this helps!
