Lesson 6: Graphing slope-intercept equations# Graphing lines from slope-intercept form review

Slope intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is slope and b is the y-intercept. We can use this form of a linear equation to draw the graph of that equation on the x-y coordinate plane.

Slope intercept form is $y=mx+b$ , where $m$ is slope and $b$ is the $y$ -intercept.

Slope-intercept form is nice when you're drawing graphs.

For example, imagine we're given the equation $y=2x+7$ and asked to graph it.

Straight from the equation, we know the $y$ -intercept is $7$ .

And we know the slope is $2$ .

So, for every one unit we go to the right, we must go up two units:

Here is our final graph:
