get: y-5=4(x-1).The second form, slope-intercept, is written as y=mx+b. M is the slope and b is the y-intercept. It is good to use this form when you know the slope of a line and they-intercept. For e ... is form when you know the slope of a line and they-intercept. For example, say that you are given a y-intercept of 6 and a slope of 3. You would insert the 6 in place of the b and the 3 in place of th ...

Math Functions

ction.A linear function can be modeled by the equation f(x)=ax+b, where a is the slope and b is the y-intercept. Linear functions form a straight line when graphed and maintain a constant slope. It ca ... the cups sold, and y would be income. If the people running the stand start with no money, then the y-intercept will be zero.
