## anonymous one year ago Find the slope and the y-intercept of the line.

$y=-1/5x+7$

Y=mx+b m is the slope b is the intercept when x=0

Any line that can be written in the form $$y=mx + c$$ leaves in evidence two important compositions of the line: - "m" which is the slope of the line. - "c" being the y-interception of the line. This can be easily proven by putting a generic point $$u(0,y)$$ on y- axis, on the line obtaining: $y=(0)+c$$y=c$ Therefore, "c" represents the "y-interception".

as owlcoffee is saying $\Large y = \color{red}{m}x+\color{blue}{b}$ $\Large y = \color{red}{\text{(slope)}}x+\color{blue}{\text{(y-intercept)}}$
