Equations of a line can take multiple forms, with variations in appearance, but each describing the same line in a linear equation. One such form is the slope intercept form: Most commonly stated, the formula is: y = mx + b m = slope of the line b = y-axis intercept of the line Slope intercept form is the most commonly used form of linear equations, where the coefficients utilized in the equation represent the slope and line intercept, hence the name of the form as the slope-intercept form. Making the Calculation There are many on-line … [Read more...]
