Do you know the equation of slope intercept form?

no

Slope 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.

Other examples y = 2x+9 has slope of m = 2 y = -82x-6 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
