# What is the slope and y-intercept of the line y=2x-1?

The slope, $m$, is $2$, and the y-intercept is $- 1$.
The equation $y = 2 x - 1$ is in the slope-intercept form of a linear equation, which is $y = m x + b$, where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y-intercept.
For the equation $y = 2 x - 1$, the slope is $2$ and the y-intercept is $- 1$.
