# What is the slope of the line whose equation is y=2x+7?

Feb 13, 2017

The slope is $\textcolor{red}{m = 2}$

#### Explanation:

Because this equation is already in the slope-intercept form we can obtain the slope directly from the equation.

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.

Or, for this equation:

$y = \textcolor{red}{2} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{7}$

Therefore the slope is $\textcolor{red}{m = 2}$
