# How do you write an equation, in slope intercept form, of a line with a slope -7 and y intercept 1?

Aug 15, 2017

y = -7x + 1

#### Explanation:

The slope intercept form has the general equation of

$y = m x + b$

m = the slope ( Think mountain slope )

m = -7

b = the y intercept ( think b beginning x = 0 )

b = + 1 so

y = -7x +1
