How To: Identify the slope and Y-intercept given y=mx+b

Identify the slope and Y-intercept given y=mx+b

This tutorial shows how to identify the slope and y-intercept given the formula y=mx+b. In this formula m is always going to be the slope and b is always going to be the y-intercept. Therefore if your given a problem like the one displayed in this video: y= 8/3x + 9, the slope would be 8/3 and the y-intercept would be 9. When given these problems all you have to do is match the given numbers to the formula to find the slope and y-intercept.
