Start by studying some lessons about the Slope-Intercept form of a linear equation, so that you can identify which part is the slope and which part is the y-intercept.

You could also look up "Slope-Intercept" in the index of your textbook, if you have one.

If you see something confusing or have other difficulties understanding the lessons that you check at the link above, please come back and post a specific question about it.

Also, please read the forum guidelines before posting again.

Thank you! :cool:

You have been given equations in slope-intercept form (here) and have been asked to name the slopes and y-intercepts. All you need to do is copy down the values they've given you.

For example, if they'd given you the equation "y = 3x + 2", you'd write down "slope m = 3, y-intercept is at y = 2".

For the equations that aren't already solved for "y=", do the solving. (here) Then, once you've gotten them rearranged to "y=" form, copy down the values. That's all there is to it!
