Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Slope intercept form is in the general form of y = mx+b If you had an equation like y = 3x+7 the slope would be m = 3 since the 'm' and '3' match up. They are both in front of the x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Other examples y = 2x+9 has slope of m = 2 y = 82x6 has slope of m = 82 y = (2/5)x + 3 has slope of m = 2/5 y = 6.7x  10 has slope of m = 6.7
