# What is the slope and y-intercept of the line y=7x-3?

Apr 15, 2018

$\left(0 , - 3\right)$ is the y-intercept
slope is equal to $7$

#### Explanation:

$y = 7 x - 3$ is in the general form $y = m x + b$ where m is the gradient or slope

So your slope is equal to $7$

The y-intercept can be found when $x = 0$

$y = 7 \left(0\right) - 3$

$y = - 3$ ie $\left(0 , - 3\right)$
