    its just a form of equation of line....it cannot have a proof....but other forms can be converted to this form y=mx+b using some arithmetic.

    y=mx+c or y=mx+b b or c is called 'y-intercept'

    lets say, P(x, y) is some point which lies on this line with slope m and y intercept = c, then the slope = m = (y-c)/x mx = y-c y = mx+c thus the point (x, y) on the line with slope m and y-intercept c lies on the line if and only if y = mx + c

    We know : \[m = \frac{y - y_1}{x-x_1}\] \[\implies m(x-x_1) = y - y_1 \implies mx - mx_1 + y_1 = y\] Here : \(y_1 - mx_1 =b = y- Intercept\) \[\color{green}{y = mx + b}\]

    then the slope = m = (y-c)/x how did you get?? @ganeshie8

    @Hares333 : \(y_1 - mx_1 = b\) Becuase, in y-intercept, x_1 must be 0, so we are left with : y_1 = b = Intercept..

    See, I am taking the example of @ganeshie8 : He has taken : \((x_1,y_1)\) as \((0,c)\). Now : \(y_1 - mx_1 \implies c-0 \implies c\) And \(c\) is nothing but y-intercept..

    We call 'm' as Slope and b or c as y-Intercept or simply Intercept.. So , this makes Slope-Intercept Form..
