Slope intercept form
Slope-intercept form is a way to write linear equations given by the equation y = mx + b. Slope-intercept form makes it easy to graph a linear equation because you know the slope (m) and y-intercept (b) of the line.
Given a point and the slope of a line, you can write a linear equation in slope-intercept form.
m = 3 ; (3, 5)
