color(brown)(y = mx + c where m is the slope and c is the y intercept.

#### Explanation:

The equation of a straight line on a graph is made up of a y term, an x term, and a number and are written in the form of y = mx + c.

The slope of the line is known as the gradient and is represented by m in the equation.

The point at which the line crosses the y-axis is the c in the equation which is nothing but the y-intercept.

$y = m x + c$ where m is the slope and c is the y intercept.
