See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

This equation is in the slope-intercept for, The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

$y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and $\textcolor{b l u e}{b}$ is the y-intercept value.

$y = \textcolor{red}{1} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{12}$

Therefore:

• The slope is: $\textcolor{red}{m = 1}$

• The $y$-intercept is: $\textcolor{b l u e}{b = 12}$ or $\left(0 , \textcolor{b l u e}{12}\right)$
