Slope Intercept Form Calculator

Top

A straight line graph of a function y = mx + b, on the x,y plan is called the slope-intercept form. It is also known as y-intercept form. In the slope-intercept form, y = mx + b, m is the slope and b gives the y-intercept.

Plug in the value of slope and the y-intercept into this calculator. The slope intercept form calculator will give the equation of a line.
 
Step 1 : Read the problem given and note the value of slope and the y-intercept.

Step 2 : Substitute the slope and y-intercept value into the slope intercept form formula,
y = mx + b,
and get the equation of the line.

Solved Examples

Question 1: Find the equation of line with slope of -3 and y-intercept 5.
Solution:
 
Step 1 : Given :
slope, m = -3
y-intercept, b = 5

Step 2 : Equation of line,
y = mx + b,
y = (-3)x + 5,
y = -3x + 5.
 

Question 2: Find the equation of line with slope of 2 and y-intercept 1.
Solution:
 
Step 1 : Given :
slope, m = 2
y-intercept, b = 1

Step 2 : Equation of line,
y = mx + b,
y = (2)x + 1,
y = 2x + 1.
