    That's written in the formula y=mx +b. m represents the slope. So the slope of that equation is the number that takes the place of m. b represents the y-intercept.

    The slope is the part before the x in the original equation.

    Exactly. What do you see in front of the x in the question? What number is next to x? That is the slope.

    you have y=3.7x-3, and that is matching up with y=mx+b. If m is 3.7, what is b?
