# How do you write an equation of a line in slope intercept form if the line has a slope of 7 and a y- intercept of –2?

Slope-Intercept Form

$y = m x + b$,

where $m$ is the slope, and $b$ is the y-intercept.

Since $m = 7$ and $b = - 2$ in the posted problem, we have

$y = 7 x - 2$.

I hope that this was helpful.
