**In general, the slope intercept form assumes the formula: y = mx + b.**

- m is the
**slope**(lesson on**slope**) mnemonic : 'm' means 'move' - b is the y -
**intercept**( lesson on the y-**intercept**) mnemonic : 'b' means where the line begins.

Also know, how do you solve slope intercept form?

- Identify the slope, m. This can be done by calculating the slope between two known points of the line using the slope formula.
- Find the y-intercept. This can be done by substituting the slope and the coordinates of a point (x, y) on the line in the slope-intercept formula and then solve for b.

One may also ask, how do you find the slope calculator? **How to find slope**

- Identify the coordinates (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) .
- Input the values into the formula.
- Subtract the values in parentheses to get 2/(-5) .
- Simplify the fraction to get the slope of -2/5 .
- Check your result using the slope calculator.

Simply so, how do you find slope?

The **slope** of a line characterizes the direction of a line. To find the **slope**, you divide the difference of the y-coordinates of 2 points on a line by the difference of the x-coordinates of those same 2 points .

How do you find the slope in a graph?

**Using the Slope Equation**

- Pick two points on the line and determine their coordinates.
- Determine the difference in y-coordinates of these two points (rise).
- Determine the difference in x-coordinates for these two points (run).
- Divide the difference in y-coordinates by the difference in x-coordinates (rise/run or slope).
