im helping an 8th grade with y-intercept and slope

Zari:

what you need help with?

th3yluvgg:

she wants to know why slope is so hard

Zari:

what do you think about this ?

th3yluvgg:

Slope-intercept form, y=mx+b, of linear equations, emphasizes the slope and the y-intercept of the line.

th3yluvgg:

she still is confused

Zari:

okay tell me where she confused at?

Vocaloid:

old question but answering to close y = mx + b is an equation that gives you y in terms of x, m, and b. the slope is m and the y-intercept is b. Recall that slope is a measure of the "steepness" or rate of change of a linear function. so if y = 2x + 3 for example, the slope is 2 and the y-intercept is 3 (this can also be written as (0,3))
