# How do you find the slope & y-intercept of the equation y = 2x + 3?

Jan 12, 2016

slope = 2 , y-intercept = 3

#### Explanation:

One of the forms of the equation of a straight line is y = mx + c where m represents the slope and c, the y-intercept.

In this question the equation y = 2x + 3 is in this form and by directly

comparing y = 2x + 3 with y = mx + c we obtain : m = 2 and c = 3 .
