In the formula "y=mx+b" what is "b"? I've never quite been able to figure that out.

That is the value of 'y' when x = 0.
Geometrically:
That is the height of the point on y-axis (from the origin) - where the straight line intersects the y-axis.
It is generally referred to as the "y-intercept" of the line.
