This video shows us how to solve algebraic equations with the y = mx+b format. When talking about solving y=mx+b format, it's about solving linear equations so that y is on one side and with some terms x on the other side. Here in this equation 'm' is actually the slope of the line and slope= (rise/run) and it is interrupted with the term 'b'. This can be explained by taking an example of the same format. In the example 2x+3y=9, we need to shift the term '2x' to the other side so that the equation will look like the required format and by doing that we have 3y=2x+9. And then divide the whole equation by 3 to get the required format and with this we have y=(2/3)x+3 and in this equation we have m=(2/3) and b=3. Similarly looking at the other example 15y=2x1 and here we need to first shift the term 1 to the other side and by doing this we have 5y=2x2. Then divide the whole equation by 5 so that the equation will be of the required format and we have y=(2/5)x+(2/5). In this equation we have m=(2/5) and b=(2/5). This is the way to solve the algebraic equations with the y = mx+b format.
